|A Beautiful View|
Within my fortress, I said I was looking for a friend,
And you quite perfectly returned, "Me too."
Time went by; layers were removed.
Our blooming world grew in every direction.
And now, though the ivory tower be not breached,
You, breath of fresh air and water for this thirst, mean so much.
You, even though so far in distances a few, do so much.
You are a darling particular and precious friend.
Holding my hand through the fire,
Bearing a portion of the heat for a moment,
As you listen to my hopeless cries,
The fabric of our bond stands strengthened.
With heartbeats quickened and stride lengthened,
My hope somehow renewed,
Recognizing your generous heart and outstretched hand
As my failing heart your care and kindness revived.
