    • I am here, heart in hand, ready to share time and poems ith anyone who will give me the time in their day.

    Friend

    I see you there...
    in the shadows,
    secretly watching me.
    Dissecting bits and pieces
    of me...   of my life,..
    baring my very soul.

    You come to me
    and give me counsel.

    On this day,
    you become my friend
    my therapist, my mechanic,
    my anchor in a storm.

    On this day...
    You become my healer,
    You tear me down..
    Only to build me back up.
    You become my friend.
