Silently alone with my cup of tea
Patiently awaiting my friend’s arrival,
Reflecting thoughts alive in my journal
Enjoying this time’s peaceful interlude.
My heart yearns with gentle care
To know my friend free and safe,
Reflecting on our special friendship
Filling me with new found warmth.
Reading from my valued journal
Remembering thoughts of other days,
New insights into who I am
Reverberating from those thoughts.
I look up and see my friend
Feeling joy that she is here,
Sharing presence and time together
Embracing friendship deeply held.
