Another Kiss for a Friend: a Poem
Just another kiss of those that never lied
this time to say thanks for the gift of you
for never, ever allowing ego and pride
to spoil on yourself what is noble and true.
Now sounding much like a greeting card
I can't help it as I'm looking for a way
not really knowing how to start
to make look original what I say.
For, words have been abused and kisses made sour
on a friend's cheek they looked too close to lips
and every honest gesture or a birthday flower
often raised eyebrows of suspicious creeps.
A dude with a female friend always a treat for rumor
while innocent and simple to a trusting wife
and it always tickles my sense of humor
spicing our friendship with some extra life.
So bring your cheek closer for one more kiss
and let it say words never said before
for no one ever had a friend like this
to come up with words that would say more.
