​A moment of friendship



Some friends play at friendship but a true friend sticks closer than one’s nearest kin.  Proverbs 18:24



There is a place in my heart where you live,

Like a warm ember,

Lighting the darkness,

Warming the winter,

Soothing my spirit,

Reminding me, I am not alone.

There is a place in my heart,

In which time, distance and details are lost.

Flashes of memory

Brighten my thoughts,

Turn the corners of my mouth,

And ease my day,

There is a place in my life where you live,

Like a blazing fire,

Filled with crackling laughter,

And bright flickering smiles.

Darkness as a backdrop

only makes the joy brighter.

And when we part.

The ember,

A bit larger,

A bit brighter,

A bit warmer,


Until next time…
