MY FRIEND

 I wrote this poem more than 20 years ago.  I still mean it.  This is for all of you that have touched me.

 MY FRIEND 

GENTLE HANDS TO HOLD ME TIGHT,
HANDS THAT REACH OUT TO TOUCH ME,
IN THE DARK AND LONELY NIGHT.

 SOFT EYES, TO LOOK INTO MINE,
AND TOUCH, WITH IN, A CORD,
A CORD AS OLD AS TIME.

 TENDER LIPS TO WHISPER,
WORDS SO SOFT AND CLEAR,
THOUGHTS THAT TOUCH MY HEART,
AND DIM MY EYES WITH A TEAR.

 OUR TIME TOGETHER IS SPECIAL,
AS THROUGH LIFE WE WEND.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT COMES TOMORROW,
BUT, I LOVE YOU.  WHY?  

BECAUSE YOU ARE MY FRIEND.

 1989 R.M."doc" Livingston

Things will be fine in 2009.
We must take the time in 2009.
Let our feelings shine in 2009.
use words that rhyme in 2009.
