Surviving Friendships Abound

A rush to journey

away to see

loved ones

from the past

Not knowing what

will be until

the moment

came

Later on to see

another

warmed my heart

and to connect

Just made

the trip

all worthwhile

And then to come

home

loved ones

with greetings

A burst

and a shock

soon led to

discoveries

some unwarranted

other blessings

soon ensued

Patience

and wisdom

gathered

to welcome

a new member

Here we are

learning

and living

striving

to decide

what is the truth

when the truth

beacons us forward

to let us know

we are friends

until the end of time

don’t ever let our

friendship go

Love and hugs

to all who

care to listen

Listen Well To the Whispers

Listen closely-

Whispers may come-

To your ear-

Someon is speaking-

Yet, no one seems to-

Hear the voice-

Talking, just plainly-

chatter, chatter-

Rush to set up,

To catch up-

-One-

One lonely voice-

No one hears-

So she sits quietly-

settling down in a chair-

and simply watches-

the others-

as they start to-

-ask-

-the-

same-

questions-

she-

just asked.

Oh do not judge

Oh do not listen

I am just one

to love without

condition.

Be not afraid

as I do know

I care

But sometimes

I fear

no one cares

to listen

to whispers.

Everyone matters.

Listen Well.

Whispers

May come again.

Listen Well.
