My promise to you.

If I invite you in and offer friendship.

As your path through life has you passing by.

If I open my arms to embrace you.

And express a love you cannot deny.

If I offer you a strong and broad shoulder.

On which you can lay your weary head,

And let out a long, relieving, cry.

If I comfort your heart and soul.

And with your needs, and desires, I do comply.

If I offer you advice, and opinions.

And convince you, that on me, you can rely.

If I can do these things for you.

Can you do these things for me?

If you can, I promise you a friendship,

And a love for you.

That will never, ever, die.

I have read this poem several times because it merits closer appreciation. It speaks of a deep and abiding friendship in which two people can say I love you without it degenerating into something less noble. I raises the concept of love to a higher plane which is liberating and meaningful. I applaud this poem as a work of art which comes from a soul with the experience of true love untarnished and pure.

Thank you again JD

These words come from the heart of one who understands that love flowers out of friendship. The last three lines speak of commitment and love, a rare combination but a jewel in the crown of life.

Thank you for this

May these things come to manifest within your life.

It is so easy to forget when one is truly blessed how we take such things for granted.

Be Well
