My friend for life is always there
My friend for life will always care
about the things that worry me,
about the times when I can’t see
that things around arn’t quite as bad,
the things that make me lone and sad.


My friend for life won’t ever judge,
or critisize, or hold a grudge.
My friend for life will never tell
my darkest secrets, never sell
me out to those who wish me hurt,
to those who try to dish the dirt.


My friend can always talk to me,
about the things that she can see.
The things that make her scared to go
to places dark and deep below.
To places only we two know.


My friend for life knows who she is,
My friend for life my heart I give.

Words not said

No need

She felt his happiness

he sensed her pain

.

Just a glance

No more

She saw his anguish

he witnessed her joy

.

Two minds joined

As one

.

He was her soul mate

she his inspiration

He looked from afar
not knowing whether or not
she felt the same
.
She glanced from a distance
afraid to reveal
her feelings for him
.
It was meant to be
but
it never was

There’s a very fine line

between friendship and love

But how do you know

if you’re below or above?

A brush of a hand

Her breath on your cheek

When she looks in your eyes

Does your heart miss a beat?

I’ve crossed that line

I wonder if she

Feels some of the magic

That’s happened to me?

The beach looks different today

The sea the sky the waves are grey

Pebbles now are hid from sight

The shore a sheet of dazzling white

I hear a laugh I see a child

throwing snowballs running wild

There a puppy leaping high

chasing snowflakes in the sky

I look around, I love the way

the beach looks different today

sitting

quietly

in a corner

sobbing

tears flowing

down her cheeks

alone

mind searching

for a reason

confused

wondering

why did he leave

suddenly

joy

happiness

now all gone

crying

trembling

curled in a ball

inconsolable

others

ignore her

it’s like

she’s

invisible

She sits and stares
unfocused eyes swimming to the horizon
Gazing into infinity
.
No sign of tears
Her expressionless face an empty canvas
A sea of pallor

I look into her eyes
I see nothing but a swirling mist of grey
That sparkle gone

I try to ask her why
a cloud of despair envelopes her
She hears me not

But I will wait
I’ll stay by her side for as long as it takes
for her to return

But for now
She inhabits a sorrowful place of her own
Somewhere

I know not where
