Friendship's Hand.


Close are the bonds of friendship's love.

Tighter than guy-ropes made of steel
Are the ties of affection, proving
At length, the power of feelings.
Born of real ease with another,
They create needs stronger than pain.

Friendship defies hurt, discovers,
After a little while, that chains
Made in life's fire can never break.

Time will gather the trailing threads
Once again, and for friendships's sake,
Will make tighter still love's rope, led
By acceptance that friends stay true,
I offer this outstretched hand to you.

    This is 100% what true friendship is all about, that you write this way, Fay, is testimony of what you value and of who you are - exquisite.

    Bonded in flames of molten steel
    cast in a crucible to anneal
    forged, shaped, presented forth
    the heart of a friend, from the north (Report) Reply

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
