A friend For Life Is Priceless .

Updated on July 2, 2014

The lovely Lavina, Sweet girl that you were.

Under my wing, I tried to secure,

Your doubts and confusion of what

truly is real, while finding out how you really feel.

No-one could know how l'd come to feel,

Such love for a beautiful almond--eyed girl.

We couldn't have known , if under my wing

Would prove to be fruitful.

Make both our hearts sing.


But you were so honest, though shy,

You grew strong.

Your physical beauty can only be matched

By your kindness, humility and love.

Such wonderful qualities seeped through

Your every pore.

You seemed unaware of how easy

you were to adore.


Now much time has passed and l am

the one needing help.

You bring me a touch of the sun.

You know what to say when my world

seems a wreck.

Your wonderful sayings, l'll never forget.



When unhappy l feel many days of my life,

For my life didn't turn out the way l'd have liked.

But Lovely Lavina, your heart more than gold.

You've become a strong woman.

In all ways it shows.

You lift me up, for this l thank you.

There's no-one quite like you.

You're faithful and true.

I cannot imagine my life without you.

Though miles are between us, you never forget

to send words of beauty when l feel bereft.


The Lovely Lavina with almond -eyed beauty

and a heart so pure.

You are precious, my love.

You always will be.

Deep in my heart you always will be.

    Thank you, Colin. I am not finding it so easy to keep up with everyone's writing, now that so many have left HB.

    I do my best to read as many of yours as possible. You never fail.

    Gosh, Dim... what a beautiful loving tribute to a wonderful person and to whom you are so close. This is words spoken from your heart, I can tell. Lavina must be smiling from ear to ear reading this. I hope she does. She has a wonderful friend in you. True friendships never fade. I know you juxtapose paths and how they can change in life but the simple point here is that friends will be friends.

    I love your photos here as well. She is like a ray of sunshine and she is beautiful. It's very awesome to see a hub with such sweet dedication and love. You are lucky to have such wonderful friends, Dim. I admire your courage and spirit in everything you do because you have a great mind and a greater heart. :)

    Have a sweet day, Dim.

    Even though Lavina is technically a friend, she is more than that to you. What's that saying? A son is a son till he takes a wife, a daughter is a daughter all her life. :)
