TO DARREN - SOME STARS SHINE BRIGHTER

Listen to poem:
SOME STARS SHINE BRIGHTER
Some stars shine brighter Some waves crash stronger Some winds blow warmer Some days are lovelier Some friendships are eternal... During our lives we meet a lot of people But some will conquer a special place in our hearts They'll be the ones for whom We'll fight a little harder We'll cry a little stronger We'll cheer a little louder We'll worry a lot over They are the ones That will always be there for you Laughing with your happiness Holding you during your tears Some are in the same city Others on a continent away The distance doesn't matter For we carry them always In our minds and in our hearts So they're never really far away from our thoughts So my dear and sweet friend Thank you for allowing me in your life For always be there for me Thanks for being my rock You've a heart of gold The most beautiful soul Your light shine thru your poems Your care and attention thru your words I'll be always here for you too Cheering for you every step of your way... Take care of yourself and come back to us fast... And... never forget... To just be yourself Because you're simply perfect Just the way you are... ...and very much loved, my dear friend... Love you, Darren March 28th, 2017

I joined PoetrySoup today and Darren was the first to send me a warm welcome. The strange thing is that when I saw your poem, Claudia, I instantly knew that it was for the same Darren--although I had no idea of the history/situation. How strange. Your poem is beautiful and you are lucky to have a friend like Darren and he's lucky to have a friend like you. You both have a beautiful soul :)

This is wonderful, Claudia! I have no idea what's going on with Darren, but I have only been here since December, and he was one of the first people to befriend me and compliment my work, and I was struck immediately by his kindness and sincerity, and it made me feel at home here, (along with a few others). He is in my prayers and thoughts, and I am so thankful to have made his friendship. A wonderful tribute here, and a beautiful poem! Blessings!
