a friendship for … forever

a friendship forever

A friendship forΒ  forever

Are words too seldom heard

That kind of steadfast loyalty

So often is averred

These days to expect permanence

Could almost seem absurd


And yet…


Here we are together

While all these years have passed

Your deep soaked type of loyalty

Is strong and so steadfast

That to your soul’s sweet light

My heart is firmly clasped


And so…


How am I to thank you

For all that you have been?

Support through my adversities

And all the in between

The kind of true, deep selflessness

This world has seldom seen


It seems


Our friendship is so rare

It’s true, a thing apart

And see I follow to your lead

The light shines where you start

But know that when you need me most

You’re safe within my heart
