|| Friendship || I II

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 1/3/2016

I
Every time I see you
I hang my head in shame
For all the selfish seasons
The times I was to blame

But you look back with love
A picture drawn of grace
Your friendship given freely
A smile on your face

Charity suffers long
The scriptures say; it's true
Charity is faithful
It's been lived out in you

II
A blessing I ask on friends so dear
When I need them they are near
To join in laughter or dry a tear
I know they will be here

Adventures shared and stories told
Of days gone by, friends brave and bold
Treasures cannot be bought or sold
Our memories never grow old

I thank God for close-knit hearts
A bonded love formed from the start
Not made of conversational art
May we never be torn apart

These are very lovely, and

These are very lovely, and have a nice rhythm. Your poetry writing has improved! I think the first one is particularly good; you have some lines that I just adore. A picture drawn of grace is probably my favorite line from the two poems; it's very elegant wording. Great job--you have strong theme, rhythm, and execution!

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
