This world is an amazing place. The people you meet, who you never really meet except through writing or photos, words and images, can be the best part of all. I have had the pleasure of exchanging wonderful stories and experiences with my friend B.G over at Getting through Anxiety (gettingthroughanxiety.wordpress.com). She and I both have a fondness for positivity, writing, the animal world and too many other things to count. I asked B to do a compilation with me and she agreed. I was so excited as we have different styles and I was so happy with what we merged and created. I hope you enjoy it and know that we both think quite fondly of our invisible friends, you here who read and comment. Our lives wouldn’t be the same without the greatest and kindest gift of friendship. Thank you and here is our offering to you, our friends.
A poem by B.G and me😊
Part of me regrets
That we’ve never met
And that we’ve only talked
Through words on an electronic page.
We speak through wires and keys
Thoughts flowing with ease
Yet we are like birds
Locked within this cage.
Yet here you are before me
Words written to share glimpses
Of your soul that speaks,
Getting to know you.
To find a friend not met
To share a virtual talk across worlds
Our paths may never cross perhaps
Except through a sentence or two.
For as much as we may want to meet face to face
We need to remember the importance of being safe
For in this world there are those less than kind
Those who do not know the true value of a friend.
But you have managed to constantly brighten my day
With the constant words of kindness that you say
You’re always there offering a helping hand
Full of advice you find in your heart to lend.
But in the quiet space when I feel lost
I know your invisible thoughts come to reach me
To give me the gift of support,
To tell me I’m not so alone.
And in a world of pain
Where we need kindness to stay sane
I look to you for comfort
From the coldness I sometimes feel.
And in every word you type
You make it all alright
For having someone understand
Can have the amazing power to heal.
To friendship….a beautiful thing indeed. Thanks B for joining me on this journey of friendship. I truly cherish it. Please make sure you stop over and visit B, she is wise and inspirational and I know you will love her tips that help make our world a bit smoother. Peace and blessings, K
