If I need a place
to rest my mind
will you lend a shoulder
for just a little time?
If I need to shed
concerns and talk
can I call you up
regardless of the clock?
If I need a hug
to feel some warmth
will you offer protection
from the storm?
Thank you, my friend,
for your loving support
for your uplifting smiles
and your unselfish heart

Those are surefire ways to know someone’s a friend and we can all use one! Nicely done, Lauren, you captured the anguish felt when one needs a friend.

Love this Lauren. You really captured the words of friendship.

Have a great day, my friend! xoxo
Aww..thanks, Deb! And you are one friend I’m very thankful to have, even though long distance! Have a good Friday tomorrow and weekend! Hugs! xo
So sweet. Love your poem too. REAL friends are treasures and hard to find. Stephen King was right, you never really have friends like you did in high school, later in life. At least that’s been my experience. My high school pals and I would have done anything for each other. I miss that. 😦
Hope you have a great weekend Lauren!
PS: My book launch post is now up, woo hoo..I’m in marketing mode now. 🙂
Thanks so much, Geraldine…ironically, I’m still in touch with two friends from h.s. It’s amazing that we’ve kept in touch all these years and were in each others weddings! 🙂 We’re not close geographically, but we still email, talk on the phone and fb, so it’s all good! I see some truth, though, to your words. It’s tougher to make friends as we get older…you have a great weekend, too, and Big Congrats for your book. That’s so exciting and I’m very happy for you!
Had to share this on t’internet. Wonderful stuff.
Thanks very much, I’m so glad you liked my thoughts on friendship! And I appreciate your visit, too! 🙂
This reminds me of a song called Broken Open. I find it hard to open up to people, so I sort of love this poem. It inspires me.
Oh, Bianca, I can’t imagine you not opening up to people, but if my words help you, than that makes me feel good. Thanks so much, my friend! Hugs to you!
That’s so sweet. 🙂
Thanks so much, Pete, and I appreciate your visit, too! 🙂
Thank you very much…
lovely and delightful in word and image!
love and hugs xoxo
Thanks, again, my friend! ♥
