Special Friend Poem

The Best Of Friends

I wrote this poem for my friend of many years, also called David. Like myself, David and my wife Gillian enjoyed writing poetry, and we would read our work to one another, and the three of us enjoy conversation around poetry and our experiences of life's joys and troubles. David loved this poem I wrote about true friendship, maybe an ideal, but one to aspire to. Both friend David and my wife Gillian have now passed on, but I hope to see them again, in Heaven's Home!

True Friend

A true friend's like a sunny day
Of light, and warmth, and cheer,
That heals with hope along life's way,
Dispelling every fear.

A true friend's like a summer rain:
Refreshing, gentle, kind;
Water of life for all life's bane
Of spirit, body, mind.

A true friend's like a flake of snow,
A pattern formed by Love;
Uniquely given to us below,
A blessing from Above.

A true friend's faithful, most of all;
Will never let you down,
And still is there if you should fall,
If smiles in tears should drown.

A true friend's like a melody
Of life, its joyful ringing!
An echo of Heaven's harmony:
True friends, for ever singing!
