The Meaning of Friend

A true friend is a gift from God.
No more, no less.

Ears, eyes, heart
finely tuned
to every thought
action
need

A friend seeks balance,
craving only that which
is offered
and not one drop more

Giving, sharing
even the smallest things.
A warm hug,
kiss,
smile

A friend knows when
to step up
and when to step down.
Never pushing
or demanding

Reaching fingers
with open palm.
Electric energy
pulsing
across the gap,
joining
two strangers
into one compact unit.

A friend asks for nothing,
but is grateful
when something
drips into the heart,
warming the soul’s
ties.

Prayers offered
and heard.
Thanks given
for the smallest
of gestures

A friend is all
and more.
