I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
The Hands of Friendship consist of 3 poems in response to "Word Prompts Help Creativity / Week 9" by Brenda Arledge.
Divine Friendship is a poem that descibes when we stop trusting in others as friends and put our faith only in God.
Hand of Friendship is a poem about how friendship comes quite close to lasting forever, being with us up to the end.
Long Distance Friends is a poem about treasuring the friendships we make across the borders with people we have never met.
I hope you enjoy them.
" Bruno Mars - Count On Me"
She has no need for superficial friendships,
they’ve broke her once before
with their callous concern.
She puts her trust in the one
who rules the heavens and the earth,
who doesn’t hesitate to reach out with a helping hand.
One who never lets her down
time and time again,
showing her the way to breathe again.
When your best friend is God, you are never alone.
Hand of Friendship
Nothing last forever
but friendship comes quite close,
as we treasure
those hardcore moments
right up until life’s end.
Like the vastness of the ocean
friends exist within each wave
guiding us away from turbulence
to the calmness of the shore.
A true friend is someone who sees the pain in your eyes while everyone else believes the smile on your face.
Long Distance Friends
Across the borders
out of arms reach,
the solace of a friendship is born.
A treasure to hold close
helping one to broaden his horizons,
learning new lingo along the way.
A chance to view a different perspective
both happy and sad.
A place one enjoys a smile or two
feeling like he’s talking to the person next door,
without realizing the miles in between.
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
— Dr. Seuss
