Carpenter You are so much like my mother,
My feelings for you are like no other.
You are a person I will treasure,
Always and Forever.

Poems you taught me to write,
You are the one who showed me the light.
I don’t know what I would do,
If in my life, I didn’t have you.

To me, you have been so influential,
Keeping things I tell you confidential.
You always seem to touch my soul,
Without you, I wouldn’t feel whole.

The greatest Gift,
in the end
was a family
and a Friend.
An ear to lend
a hand to hold,
and you,
my Friend –
your heart of gold.

Sharp We all need someone
To talk to in our life,
A friend to whom we run
In times of stress or strife

A friend who’s always there
Throughout the years,
A friend we know will care
And take away our fears.

A friend who’s always near,
Waiting for our call,
To wipe away our tears,
And lift us when we fall.

A loving friend indeed,
On whom we can depend
To fulfill our every need –
Thank you, precious friend

Rainbows created my imagination
As it arched across the sky
On one end there sat you
At the other end, there sat I

Imagining I could slide across
Over the rainbow to the end
There would be my pot of gold
The sweet love of my dear friend

The rainbow is a connection
Like a bridge from me to you
It appears joined by sunlight
Then the grey skies turn to blue

Arriving after the rainstorms
It became so evident to me
Thoughts of love follow rainbows
They arched right across the sea

A colourful arching rainbow
It has no gate, it has no door
It reaches from friend to friend
It arches from shore to shore

I smiled up today at the sky
How far would my loving smile go
It slid right over to the other side
The other end of the coloured rainbow

Sharp I saw a lonely little boy,
walking down a railroad track
I didn’t see a trace of joy
as I looked back
If I see him again,
I know what I’ll do
Say, Hi there friend,
Let’s play! me and you.

Another day is passing
And still there is no word
On how your life is going
And who is in your world

I pray you will consider
These words I write to you
I liked you in my life
Yet maybe now it’s through
I don’t want to see

our relationship come to an end
And I don’t want to find
our lives standing still
We are moving towards the end
And we really ought to wait

Because God planted something special
Deep within our hearts
I know your life is hectic
You are busy all day through
My life is busy also

But I still think of you
I want to send my love
And remind you of these things
Just so you will know
You mean so much to me

Apology

Friendship Poems Comments Off

How do I tell you I’m sorry –
With a gesture, a look, a touch?
How is it I never realized
I hurt you so very much?
I do not ask forgiveness,
A comfort I’ll never deserve.

I merely want to let you know,
But I cannot find the nerve.
To finally confront you, face-to-face,
To look you in the eye,
To face your wrath, your apathy –
Too terrified to try.

You called me selfish, I turned away,
I festered and I fled;
Cutting and wounding and lashing out,
Just to see if you bled.

Betraying and deceiving you,
I surely had no right
To snatch away such a precious gem;
A dark thief in the night.

Four years and forever passed
To bring us to this day,
When I present these simple words
I never thought to say.

The time has come, it’s long past due,
To put aside my fear;
Would this confession torture you,
Or have you longed to hear?
To hear those two forbidden words,
To vanquish all the pain,
To understand my dearest wish:
To know you once again.

The years aged me remarkably,
Though they have not made me wise;
I do know I erred irrevocably –
For that I apologize.

Friends

Friendship Poems Comments Off

Growing pains
Broken chains
A sad melody
Falling tears
Listening ears

A friend just for me
Reaching out
Sharing doubt
When life gets me down
Hands to clutch
Gentle touch
Can turn me around

Spoken words
Softly heard
Cognitivity
Holding tight
Loving light
Calm serenity

There are days when
bubbling from us comes
the innocent child within,
who giggles at the little things
and wears a silly grin.

There are days when
melancholy comes to
visit for a while;
the mind feels tired, the body weak;
we have no strength to smile.

There are days when
joy abundant
grabs a hold of you and me;
wraps us up in all it’s splendor,
lifts us up and sets us free.

There are days when
sorrow wraps us
in its cloak of grief and fear,
’till our hearts ache to the breaking,
’till our eyes can’t shed a tear.

There are days when
love bestows us
with its wonderment and light;
with its beauty and its mystery,
its power and its might.

And there are days when
life rewards us
and seems to make amends
by granting us a marvelous gift,
the precious gift of Friends.

Sitting here and thinking how
My life much richer is now
For all the ones I’ve chanced upon
And the tapestry that was spun

There was a time when no one came
No friends to play in childhood game
No one to shelter from the rain
Nor the adolescent pain

Yet in my inner heart I knew
Secrets rare and secrets true
Were wishes horses, all would ride
Other dreamers by my side

Then one day I dropped my guard
I never did something so hard
In my heart I let others in
And found I had a friend

By one’s and two’s they gathered near
Soothing all my darkest fears
A tapestry we began to weave
And I once more believe

For youth need never fade away
As long as I can dream and play
On wistful horses I will ride
With other dreamers at my side
