"Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God's best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the power of going out of one's self, and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another." Helen Keller

"My Very Special Friends Indeed"

copyright © 2008....RaeDi

I have come a long way in this span of my life

A lone Spirit for some of my travels

Some of the way, it brought some strife

But the best of this journey

I strolled along and kept the same stride

Some of my goings from place to place laid out flat and far

At other times, it seems to be greater up hill

The steep ascents brought some regrets

As I look back, I accept

My own choosing was my own downfalls

Acquired lessons well learned in each and all

Wisdom and age has brought my way

Intensification, growth, and immense appreciation

For the friends I have made along my passageway

In them, I have found that right combination

Blended are love, kindness, caring and laughter

Amalgamation of everything I could want

I take with me to the end of my trail

To you each of my friends you brought into being

I am what I am because of each one of my friends

Completeness, my totality, my earnest

Deep appreciation from each one of you

My dearest special friends

Each note, each mention, and precious remark you instilled

Were unfathomable, sincere and heartfelt

Each measure of all your gratitude’s

Imparted to me will be

Cherished and valued, I will leave each of these

Deeply ~ seated in an innate part of my heart

Where my spirit dwells is where you each will be

Each and everyone very dear to me

You are all “Special Friends” indeed…

My Favorite Color: All the colors in the rainbow. Top of
the list is white. I have flowers of all colors, but my favorite is my
flower garden of all white flowers from ground cover to my
Hydrangea Tee Trees and Rose-of-Sharon trees. When the
moon is full they glow so beautifully. With the fountain garden in
the middle, it is such a feeling of heaven to me.

A Special Friend

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 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 only would it be:

I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me.
