Because you are my friend

Because you are my friend,
my life is enriched in a myriad of ways.
Like a cool breeze on a sweltering day,
like a ray of sunshine parting glowering clouds,
you lift me up.
In good times, we soar,
like weightless balloons
over neon rainbows.
In bad times, you are soothing balm
for my pummeled soul.
I learn so much from you;
you help me see old things in new ways.
I wonder if you are aware
of the bright seeds you are sowing in me.
I’m a better person for knowing you,
so that everyone I interact with
is touched by your good effect on me.
You relax me, refresh me, renew me.
Your bounteous heart envelops me
in joy and love and peace.
May your life be filled
with dazzling blessings,
just as I am blessed
by being your friend.

  1. wow I’m impressed with your poem.. did you write this one?

    “I wonder if you are aware
    of the bright seeds you are sowing in me.
    I’m a better person for knowing you”

    Yeah, i do agree with this phrase. and I think i have to say this one not only to my very best friend but also to all the people that i consider as my friends. i think they also mold me to become who i am today and they are part of every step or chapter of my life.

    Is it okay with you, If i post this one in my blog?

  2. Please do add this in your blog. After all, my reason for posting it here is for sharing with others. I am happy you appreciate it. God Bless you.
