Our Friendship got tested


The lashing rains stung our face
We sat together side by side
The howling winds shook our bodies
We each held on despite the tide

Our hands grasped firm and tight
Not parting from the cold
We kept each other warm
Against the storm so bold

They pelted us with stones
Stating we were wrong
We held each other tight
Our friendship grew so strong

They wanted us to walk away
And part the angry way
We kept our friendship bold an strong
To last another day

The wrath of nature was our foe
We felt like slipping by
Our friendship knew no failure
We sat, we hugged, both her and I

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
