This poem is dedicated to a special friend, and to those people who come into our lives, and make it a little brighter.

Our “friendship”

By Robert Amoroso

A knowing glance,
a whispered word,
A silent thought
that can be heard
A promise kept,
A silly grin,
A beating heart
That needs to sing.

A memory shared,
A moment in time
A scribbled note
A gift of wine

Who could ever imagine
that a daily ride could kindle
a friendship that's impossible
to hide. While this “thing”
between us is obvious to all
I try to remember, I try to recall,
how did it all start I know not when
I can only remember you being
a “friend “.

And while this bond that we share
Is relatively new, a friendship like
ours, is shared by a few

Yet there may come a time
there may come day, when
this bond my be tested and
we’ll need to walk away,
and if that accrues
please let it be known
it's because of our friendship,
and the fact that we've grown

And no power on earth can take that away,
because the memories we shared
will forever stay.

PERFECTLY said Tribute and this HAPPENS! WAy too often! OUR FEELINGS are exposed and you just know the spirit of a friend, and you get caught up and you share and you TRUST and more than anything YOU TRUST and you should, and risks are taken for US all to grow! Robert, you touched a place in my heart pretty deep this morning, I couldn't sleep - so glad I gravitated to your exquisite words! You have inspired my heart tonight/early this morning - I have to get up for work at 5:00A. and it's 2:42A. so bed is calling me!
Friendship arises from such a simple place! and the memories will linger (for some) FOREVER!
I always say and feel this and wrote a poem on it too, (must re-write/etc..I feel I should)
"THERE IS A REASON, SEASON or a LifeTime for Friendships" I will send it to you ~
What our heart captures from that meeting, for as long as it lasts and what is shared is always so momumental! This poem goes into that folder ( I said earlier reading a few other of your gems that sparkled) for me to re-read.

Warmest Blessings of Love, Light and Peace, Warrior Purple Lady SHEExooo

This is a beautiful and heartfelt tribute to friendship. I have started to read some of your works, and I want to tell you that you have touched my heart. Also, you have captured the essence of friendship perfectly. A friendship means simple times, such as sharing a smile, keeping promises and sharing the favorite part of your poem is at the end, when you mention that someday things may change and you will have to walk away. Although we have special friends his life, sometimes our friends move away, end up in love with someone else, or priorities change. Yet, we never forget the special bond we had with the person and how he or she helped us to grow in the right direction. That is a cherished memory forever. I absolutely love this poem. Please check out my authors den sometime, and let me know what you think of my stories and poems.

This is the truest way to accept the frienships that have to go, some forever, some for just awhile!

Very nice sentiments, and indubitably true as well. Those who don't have a friend like that can envy you. It might even prompt somebody to go out and find one.
