Poetry: Friends

Some of you asked to see some of the poems I have written. I haven't written very many, but this one, "Friends", is very special. I wrote it for my friend Casey in a time of trial. Now it is a symbol of how I view friendship, and my approach to the people I call my friends. I have been very blessed to have such loving and dedicated friends. Lately, God has blessed me far beyond measure, and my cup is overflowing. My hope is that this poem will give you all just a taste of that....

"Friends"
By Rae Hitchings

The wispy waves of o'er
In time gone back to first
Through trials, famine, loss
The steadfast ones stand firm

Their piercing eyes of depth
Their keen true hearts of gold
Beat one with mine and yours
With us through highs and lows

As time winds forw'ds again
The life we live proceeds
Unending trials faced
Yet all with someone sees

We need them, yes, yet are them.
We want, yet give ourselves
Their names we all know well
And will forevermore

For such is our life time
To give each other hope
And through all tears and hurts
They give us hands to hold

They fight and fight for our sake's worth
Through fiery bitter tears
They labor quiet, in the dark
To show how much they feel

These people as we know,
Present themselves to hear
Our hurts our wants, to dry our tears
They wish to hear our fears

Through everything aboundeth
An ever present force
A mighty hold does bind us
That which ensnares our hearts

I speak of our own friends
These people Oh so dear
We have a claim on them
As both have tread the years

Togetherness now binds us
Without them we are lost
Through time we do so wander
Yet friends, sweet friends are ours.

Be Well!
