Warning GFA-Giggle free alert
Happy Wednesday to you. And what a Wednesday it is. A Wednesday to end all Wednesdays’. We have made it through 54 weeks of a global pandemic. Many have not.
As I was driving today, I noticed a queue of people outside somebody’s house. I realized that somebody must have passed away and that everyone was paying their respects. I was reminded how fragile life is for us all still.
I was inspired to write a poem about friendship as the person that passed was obviously a friend to so many. Two of my dearest friends have also celebrated their birthdays this month. This is also for them. You know who you are.
The Alchemy of friendship
I gave you my peril
You gave me a pearl
I gave you my shattered soul
You gave me your world
My perspective was prosaic
You altered my prism
You said my life was a mosaic
I just needed to walk out of my prison
I surrendered to self-love
Fought the fear, learned from the pain
I mined my spirit treasure trove
Began to believe in myself again
The alchemy of our friendship
Is our odyssey to embrace
I cherish our companionship
I am forever touched by your grace
That’s all for now
