The Whispering Winds

©

Published: June 2007

Like the wind whispering through the trees,
Your spirit lifts me,
Teaching me valuable lessons.
I wait patiently to grow in the light of your eyes,
Seeking approval, knowing
There's comfort in your silent embrace,
And I listen carefully to what it offers.
I feel the joy in your laughter and trusting eyes
And learn to give of myself, for no judgment is passed.
When sadness fills my heart with disappointment
And I need protection from the storm,
It is only then I realize the depth of friendship
Sewn together with unbreakable thread.
I understand that the fabric only gets better with age,
That it should be handled with care,
And sometimes it has to rain.
I have discovered my own beauty
By lessons learned while discovering yours.
Like a beautiful sky after the storm,
Your courage to break free of the clouds
Still amazes me.
I close my eyes to feel the warmth of the sun.
Such a precious gift you've given,
Appreciating the gentleness and I sigh with thankfulness,
Recognizing my fortune.
A sisterly bond that knows only
Love that is unconditional.
Nurturing with grace and acceptance.
How lucky
To share a piece of my life with a soul that so perfectly fits mine.
A puzzle with missing pieces
Now complete.
How sad for those who are still searching.
My blessings are abundant,
And I thank God for the whispering winds,
For they remind me every day
To celebrate the gift of our friendship and to hold it close,
To never let it go.

hi, my name is Cynthia. I fell in love with this poem the first time I read it. you see, I have a true friend that I've been through ups and downs with. At school my English teacher assigned a poem in which you can work in a group with your friend and recite a poem. I was working with my friend on the poem and I realized that this would be the perfect one. this poem perfectly symbolizes our friendship and Kris Rights is an amazing writer that is able to put indescribable feelings into words. I look forward to reading more of his poems.
