Take my hand

I’ll provide

Do you understand

That’s not a lie

I can wipe away your tears

Even before you cry

I can remove that splinter

From your eye.


Take my heart

It’ll beat

Even when

Yours you can’t repeat

I can bring you back to life

Even if you think your dead

You can count on

All the things that I’ve said.


Talk with me

Walk to see

What life can be

Under the shade of my tree

I can remove all doubts

Take away your fears

Even the ones

You don’t know about.


Sail with me

Across the sea

Let there be an ocean breeze

Travel far

Gaze at the stars

Under the moon

Time goes by

Far too soon.


And we’re left – holding hands

Playin’ toesy’s in the sand

Running up and down the beach

Our destination we reach

Loves eternal bliss

There ain’t none of this I want to miss.

And how about this

We intimately kiss.

Love and respect and honoring another
will cause this and more to bubble up
from the wellsprings of anyone. You
are a bonafide romantic friend.
Blessings ...
