we’ve known each other so long.
life keep us from each other more than we’d like,
we know those quiet lulls don’t dim the light.
i wanted to remind you,
that i too:
celebrate at your joy,
weep at your pain;
worry with you in your hardship.
you remind me of my value
when i feel alone;
i find security in
the silent solace that is our friendship.
i rush to your defense
as you do mine –
there is safety in our trust.
i think of you when the harvest is plenty,
when the harvest is few
i wanted to remind you:
i love you.

may God bless us in our years ahead.
