~Keeping Us Together~
There are many variations, that drive relationships apart
Like culture, food and hobbies, belief and troubled hearts.
Music, age and illness, language, money, art,
Distance, morals, faith and dress,
Or words like piercing darts.
But what keeps us together, what miracle takes place
That families, people, friends
Can ever find the grace, to move as one in union
With common interest, drive-
However does it happen, that for oneness we can strive.
We know it is necessity, God planned for life that way
We need each other so, the foundations of society
as how we all are known-
As spouses, parents, children, kin,
With our eternal spirits, God placed us into homes.
He gave us varied talents, we can't survive alone,
We need relationships, connection,
Affection, affirmation, laughter, music, fun.
Identity, creative flair, a place to feel at home.
Someone to share the joy and sorrow-
A friend to call our own.
Thank you for being my forever friend !

Poetry from the Heart
I always felt that the great high privilege
relief, and comfort of friendship was
that one had to explain nothing
