  • Back online after loosing internet for a long time. I am very happy to finally be back with all my friends and I hope to de writing and posting soon. Love Asha

because I call you my friend....

Because I call you my friend!!
It Is all that is needed most times to begin
Now that I have gotten to know you

A new friendship that had just began

I will not try to tell you that you must have faith
To make your life happy again
But I will walk beside you
Leaving my footprints in the sand next to you.

I will not tell you that you should look toward the light
To open your heart for love to find you happiness again
But I will sit quietly,  a lovely day on a park bench, just to watch the birds sing, with you
And maybe say a silent wish for my friend

I will not tell you to put the past behind you,
To move forward in life to find love again
But I would wrap my arms around you and hold you,
If you needed a friend too

I will not tell you to pray to God,
That he may forgive your sins in life to begin again
But I would be an ear to listen
If you just needed someone to talk too

I will not tell you, how sorry I am
for all that you have been through, again & again
But I will cry with you, embrace you,
Or just agree with you, that life can be cruel

It is simplicity, of understanding, in the end,
Friends can know without words what the other needs from their friend
When friends begin to understand from simple words unsaid, from just knowing each
Communication that exists, can be understood in silence between close friends

For these things I would not do for you
Are the unsaid things not needed with friends
Who grow to understand without words unnecessary with friends
But just someone to be there, cause that is what friends do


It Is all that is needed most times to begin.

Inspired by a new friend who brought a new understanding to me about friends
understanding friends.

A nice turn, letting the friendship show through. Gentle and unforced friendship. The kind we all want, and want to be.

Asha, I love this one! I have thought about my friend and wanted at times to even write a little note almost like when we were in grammer school, a little piece of white notebook paper scribbled with will you be my best friend? I love her and would do anything for her. I think my husband was jealous but not of a man, the communication and laughter. I love it down to my very heart! Beautiful. absolutely beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Ten for sure
