To my precious friends ~

A Friend's Greeting

I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me;
I'd like to be the help that you've been always glad to be;
I'd like to mean as much to you each minute of the day
As you have meant, old friend of mine, to me along the way.

I'd like to do the big things and the splendid things for you,
To brush the gray from out your skies and leave them only blue;
I'd like to say the kindly things that I so oft have heard,
And feel that I could rouse your soul the way that mine you've stirred.

I'd like to give you back the joy that you have given me,
Yet that were wishing you a need I hope will never be;
I'd like to make you feel as rich as I, who travel on
Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to lean upon.

I'm wishing at this special time that I could but repay
A portion of the gladness that you've strewn along my way;
And could I have one wish this year, this only would it be:
I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me.


I'm always so very thankful for you stopping by to visit my blog!!!

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

That is a great poem. Dawn, you are among the most generous and dear bloggers in Blogdom.

I'm off to find a picture of your little grands to direct a friend to. She received one of your lavender sachets because your grandson and her husband share the same name. ☺
