There is an old saying, "Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer" which is great if your enemies never find out they are not friends.  Unfortunately, it is often the case that you turn your friends into enemies.  How much better would it be to be surrounded by friends?




How should I write?


I think I'd like to write a poem of things that fill my heart.

I'd really like to do it well but rhyming is an art.

You can write to me as often as you like in any verse,

It has to be as good as this (It can't be any worse).

That's what Friends are for.


I had to stop and quietly think,

when from the blue did gently come,

thoughts of friends and words of truth,

that strengthened bonds so slightly wov'n.


Even in the dark of night,

always when the times seem hard,

a friend stands by when all seems lost,

and stands true 'til I'm whole again.

Where is love?


Love can be found most anywhere
Do I wonder? Do I care. Do the ladies rub my hair?
Better a two way trip to share,
hopes of the future linger.

It's only when you feel the spark
of feelings still when all is done.
The fleeting kiss that lingers on

A gentle touch, a kind remark
The happy thoughts that fill the dark
I cherish the feeling longer.

Some times are good some times are bad
Some times are very, very, sad
Like Doctor Seuss I'm me sad, glad, mad and bad.
I'd like to linger longer.

Wanted a man free of baggage.


I want a man that's free of baggage,

No burdens from a world of strife,

A vessel free of any damage,

Or vestige of a wanton life.


I want to know he's pure and gentle,

Given to bouts of love and joy,

Strong and brave and sentimental,

A darling and a real live boy.


But yet I know he's been and challenged,

Fought the fight and lived the life,

A bag well travelled knocked and damaged,

Memories, debts and kids and wife.


I really know that all the colour,

That makes him all I know and love,

Is earned throughout  a life of seasons,

Another chapter yet to live.
