Friend in Silence
Dedicated to ~ Flyman6213, Long Island, NY
 
Suddenly you came to me
it seems in my most desperate hour,
now the inner healing has begun

Silent words scroll across the page
words not so much of wisdom,
but words of silly joy
 

Alone was I searching for a friend
longing to share my worldly thoughts,
searching for someone to care

Silent words scroll across the page
words not so much of learning,
but words of silly laughter

 I look for you to share with me
my thoughts and feelings for that day,
for I know you shall not be my judge

 Finding my friend in silence
has filled an empty space,
sharing simple words in silence…

makes me smile
