True Friendship

The feeling of friendship from the start
Is that special feeling in your heart
A feeling from deep down inside
A feeling that no one should hide
A friend is there through good and bad
They make you happy when you're sad
they brighten up your darkest day
Just by the simple thing's they say
Now friendship can't be bought or sold
It may get tarnished, and may get old
You can over come your greatest fear
Just look around and it is there
Now friendship's one and only cost
Is to make sure that it's never lost

I think this poem is about letting go. You gaze through your broken windows at something precious from long ago that can never be recaptured and yet has been transformed as 'your yearning sinks with the rich moon into white. Acceptance delivered with grace and poetic skill. Love, Alison ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Sandra, not very often do i come across a poem that stuns my literary senses... And don't take that as my being aloof, as none of my own work has stun me yet! The imagework employed in this piece is radiant, as is the vernacular, in general. I wrote on a similar theme awhile back....but it pales in comparrison to this.i. rarely do this, but i have added this poem to my very small collection of 'Favorites'....Outstanding work, young lady! It's of no surprise to me that you are a published must afford me some tips one of these days! lol! ~ ~ ~
Sad, but a most beautiful piece of poetry, written by a master of the craft. Thankyou Sandra---Melvina---
Your poem so captures the difference between western and eastern culture, this being the lonliness in the west. Sad and beautifully portrayed. So fresh and cool I could feel it and see night sky while dreaming the cloud bridge. Great work. Best wishes, eliza
