Russell Topping Poems
To A Friend
You are there for me in times of joy and in times of pain you sre there for me when others are not. You see things as the way they are when I cannot because I am too blind or simply will not.
The First Snow
The first snow came last night like a thief covering the ground in a death-like shroud. The first snow melsted quietly as had my innocence and youth.

To A Friend
You are there for me in times of joy and in times of pain
you sre there for me when others are not.
You see things as the way they are when I cannot
because I am too blind or simply will not.
You speak the truth even when I do not want to hear it
and show me that I have no reason to fear it.
You may wound me greatly, but its always in love I see
I only hope I can be as good a friend to you
as you are to me.
