TO A FRIEND

i wanted to share this poem with you here at blogger. he is a dear friend i have met on the poetry site where i have become a member. i was awestruck when he emailed this to me. he is such a talented man in so many ways. he writes beautiful poetry, heavenly short stories, and sings and plays a guitar as well. i have met several of the people on the site in person, but may never meet this wonderful man............he lives in ireland.



TO MY FRIEND ACROSS THE SEA

Upon this mortal orb we live

with friendship, hope and love;


Under Heavens veil of darkest night

and twinkling stars above.


How could we have ever known

what fate would have in store?


It was decreed that we should live

on different foreign shores.

Your sincere heart beguiles me,

and the smile on your beautiful face;

My spirit will always be with you
somewhere in time and space.


Friendship is a special thing,

it will last throughout the years;

I always will be here for you

through laughter and the tears.


You are the one who lifts me up

When I am feeling low;


You give me strength to carry on

With the charms you now bestow.


To you I give a promise,

although we are apart;

this bond will never be broken,

you remain within my heart.
