My Friend

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.
