Journeying through the Road of Friendship....

Twenty years of friendship -
no small thing.
A journey of little joys
on many a bumpy road
definitely not in an expensive Ford!
Just walks along the beaten path
sometimes hurried to reach a
sometimes at a leisurely pace.
Strolling o
n a rainbow across
the sky
spreading our wings, ready to fly.

Distance and time just
temporary barriers,
not a hindrant to pursue a friendship
blessed by the Power Above to survive
through the maze called life.

Walking hand in hand
for two decades can take a toll
on any relationship, blood
related or not
but, not this one
as two friends enrich their lives
sharing emotions and reflections,
talking, chatting, arguing and loving.
The little fancies of teenage life
floating on a cloud sometimes,
landing on the ground with a thud at times
maturing jnto an association
that spreads across time
ready to take on the world
with just trust in hand.

I wonder, as each day strengthens our bond,
'Is it some magic wand
that brought us together?'
'Or, some previous incarnation connection?'
I know not,
I only savor our faith in each other
just as you do, I know.
I treasure
the beautiful threads of love
that bind us with tender joy
like a surprise gift wrapped
with a sprinkling of stars
to brighten the road ahead.
God Bless You, Dear Friend!

I mean 'are" not 'is' on --- true to many... Sorry. I'm no poet. I feel like I should mind my grammar as much as I can.
