Written for my dear friends in Sweden. This couple I met while at a rock concert in New Jersey a few years ago. They had bought my poetry book and fell in love with some of my lyrics. They are also wonderful musicians that have taken some of my poetry and put it to music. We have become great friends over the few years that we have known each other. So close we are, my brother and sister, from so far away..

Some friends of mine...that are in my heart On Swedish soil...so far apart The love we share...for one another I am proud to call...sister, brother In many ways...we are both the same We wear the same faces...Just have a different name So far away, my friends...forty-five hundred miles The distance doesn't matter...we still share our smiles I thank the lord, Jesus...for my good friends I hope I see them again...when my life ends Some friends of mine...from distant lands So far away, my friends...I can touch their hands Some friends of mine...from a distant land So far away, my friends...I can touch their hand The love we share...ev'ry night and day Brother, sister...I am proud to say Distance doesn't matter...we still share our smiles So far away, my friends...forty-five hundred miles We wear the same faces...just have a different name In many ways, my friends...we are both the same From the Sweden sun...to the U.S. moon Friendships, so beautiful...like a sunny day in June When the roses bud...and the tulips kiss I think about my friends...brother, sis So beautiful, my friends...like a sunny day in June From the U.S. sun...to the Sweden moon I think about my friends...brother, sis When the roses bud...and the tulips kiss *Dedicated to two very special friends in my life. Henrik & Maria Hamnered

A lovely verse, a lovely tribute to your friends, your brother and sister. So fortunate to share such a bond that distance is of no consequence. It is truly something special, Charlie.

A wonderful tribute to two friends, Charlie...And isn't it just amazing how you met them. What are the odds of that happening?! ---And yet it did. Best wishes, Gershon

What a rare treasure to have found two diamonds, whose existence and friendship you think constantly of - such a strong passion of true everlasting friendship. However I am certain that this love is reciprocal and that they think and love you as much. A fave for me to read of a friendship and bond across the seas, so strong and sincere that exists and will forever exist, hugs Charlie, Jennifer.

Distance does not matter in this modern world when one can talk and see each other. Stupendous that your lyrics are put to music. Well done.
