the dearness of a friend

How does a person measure
     how much a friend is treasured?
How can one tell the value
     in what mere words allow you?

Once a soul touches your heart
     never is there thought to part.
Friendships such as this are few.
     Once realized, love ensues.

Priceless tender memories
     Many days gone by
     Private trials borne
To finally be at Peace

Kind, generous, and friendly
     an honor to have known her
     My heart will forever keep
Remembrance of this lily


Dedicated to my dear friend

  1. This poem is very beautiful. I know you posted it in December but I tend to stay away from the social media, for that I apologize. I am so glad I took the time to read it. Tomilyn is always in my heart and in my thoughts, also.
