My Special Friendship

There’s a smile in your eyes that’s always been so charming

A boyish grin, playful laugh and actions so disarming

You have this way of fitting in and making everyone a friend

Nonjudgmental and always kind; on you they can depend

A soul with such innocence wearing your heart upon your sleeve

As honest as you are to them; your heart wants to believe

In fairy tales and knights of honor, the maiden will defend

The rescuer from her desperate gloom until the very end

But times have changed and the world turns ‘round

Every season brings new life and sound

To the wakened earth and the hearts that need healing

Winter snows left them cold and unappealing

But you my friend, have always held out; an act of faith and love

Blessing for any mortal woman who might find grace above

From your gentle hands, your sweet caress, your soft kisses in the sun

Not a maiden could stand a chance against your web being spun.

I sometimes wish I knew exactly what you longed for

Only you know the secrets of who would make your heart soar

I stand by to watch you, my friend, gently savoring every kiss

Not realizing what it is, your heart in love would miss

You look at me, I know, and wonder, why it isn’t there

There are just some things in the cards we weren’t meant to share.

I am confused at why love seems to want to pass us by

Lighting candles on the altar that we might one day  try

tnderhrt23, thanks so much, I wrote it in the wee hours of the morning half asleep and couldn't remember if I had published it - I'm so glad I did now and so glad you liked it so much. Thank you for your gracious comment. Love and Peace.

Rich, Thanks for stopping by my friend and I need to catch up with your writing - all this moving around and storm clean up has me so far behind. Love and Peace.

Special friendships are a blessing, yes, any kind. Love is what it is...and sometimes love is just as friends, but that's wonderful as well. That's the great thing about love, its multi-faceted. Thanks so much for stopping by, Love and Peace.

...well the thing I love about (some of) your writing is its world weary cynicism and underlying tension - always a hallmark (at least I think) in any great writer who can also write about beauty and light - and that is you in a writer's profile - I see you have '96' as your current score - if I were the judges here I would award you '196' for this well written piece for reasons already mentioned ......

Beautiful expression of friendship. It's wonderful to know and have someone as you have to make your life so much happier. Love is in the air, kisses, hugs and being one together is poetry in motion.

We all need a great friend, we are lucky in a lifetime if we can count at least 3 best friends. I have had two and I am blessed. Great hub, thank you for sharing your feelings in poetry.

saddlerider, thanks for reading and commenting. I count myself blessed everyday. Just tonight I was sitting and laughing with 3 of my best friends in my living room for about an hour - they had just brought in my new couch. I'm unable to lift anything. One of them was the man I wrote this poem for. I live for days like these.
