The Gift (poem)

Updated on August 15, 2015

So good to see you once again my friend

I can’t recall when last I saw your smile

So few can share the flare within your style

So few are left on whom one can depend

-

I treasure all the gifts you sent my way

Those rays of hope which sing out from our past

So few like you who fashioned ones which last

So few are left to see your last display

-

So few the eyes which still let wonder in

To cast their cloak once more across the floor

-

So few the hearts which take the time to spin

The wonders which a lover oft dreams for

-

And chances for new dances to begin

So few are left to stay here anymore

      Beautiful, so beautiful. I love your poem and I love Stevie Wonder's rendition of "That's What Friends Are For". Perfect choice and perfect thoughts about friends. Well done, Martin.

      Oh, such lovely sentiments expressed here, dear Mh. I love yellow roses for friendship and a friend's smile is certainly a treasure to behold. It is sad when another allows a friendship to dissolve for no apparent reason or even give a reason.

      As I always say, friendship is a special kind of love and one of the most special of gifts.

      Up ++++ sharing everywhere

      Always love the sax ...

      Blessings and peace
