Just when I thought that the day couldn’t get any better or more filled with love, it keeps on pouring in. I am one very lucky person to be blessed with so many wonderful people in my life.
One of my very special friends is also one of the most talented poetry writers that I have ever read. Deb can get an idea for a poem and write it in as little as five or ten minutes. Every time she sends me one it always speaks to me in a way that no one else’s poetry ever will. She has graciously agreed to let me share her Valentine’s Day poem that she wrote for her friends.
Thank you Deb for writing poetry that touches my soul!
If you took red from a rainbow
Would it still be a rainbow?
If it did not rain and we could
See it every day, would it
Still be as magnificent?
When a flower blooms
In all its beauty
But just for one day, one hour
Is it still considered beautiful?
If a tree produces just one apple
Is it still an apple tree?
And if I can go for just one day
One hour without you in my life
Does that mean I do not need you?
Or does it mean that I know how much
I need you to lighten my load
To share my dreams with
To hold me when I cry
And laugh with me
When tears run from my eyes
So what do you call a friendship?
That is so much more than that
One that teaches, and reaches
Into your very soul
Bringing into your life
Rainbows and flowers
Dewdrops and wisdom
Acceptance and love
That my friend is called
That my friends are what we are
