Friendship, a Priceless Gift to Life: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Going through life like puppies wagging tails

we may turn total stranger into a dear friend

sending out this signal that's trying not to fail

one of soul willing to love and to understand.

Isn't it so wondrous how little at times it may take

to find a fellow human on a same heart's page

often leading to gestures beyond handshake

with magic in what two hearts may engage.

Friends give to life that extra spice

making us laugh sharing our sorrows

turning gloomy day into something nice

highlights of memories and all tomorrows.

An alter-ego so it's said, isn't easy to find

just like a true love for all the times ahead

as we are all so different at heart and mind

hard to please -- more than it could be said.

But then, no one is asking for perfection

it is what two imperfect people can create

often a matter of capacity for satisfaction

making our friendship mediocre or great.

As always, it's something based on take and give

when a heart feeds heart not asking for a return

and at testing times it comes easy to forgive

wisdom of friendship -- something to learn.
