A Friend

Where is a friend among mortals?

The six letter word;

elusive yet fondly used.

I have searched through the ages;

like a shadow with human flesh,

I find not.


Iniquity adorned with a grin;

Lonely and treacherous,

I fathom this abode.

Someone to rely on;

like a river in the desert,

I find not.


A roar echo as laughter;

king of the jungle a sheep present.

Venom disguised as milk,

a graceful hand to hold;

like oxygen in Mars,

I find not.


Spear served as turkey drumstick

Strife resident in the heart’s bunker;

mischief on auction sale.

A life bereft of pretence;

like summer in the arctic,

I find not.


Truth scarce to behold

self as billboard display.

The keeper of a brother;

like love in hell,

I find not.


Serenity resides with a friend,

integrity a way of life,

gentility like sunray beam,

kindness his trademark,

truthfulness the meal he serves.

Love is his name.

A true and trusted friend;

Like bliss in heaven,

I find in Jesus.

Christmas! A fresh beginning for mankind

The precious breath to start anew

An excursion to redeem

To find and liberate the mislaid.


A reversal of time

Age and status jettisoned

The time to be like a child

Thinking, talking and loving as a toddler.


 The joy a manger kid brings

Godliness and innocence personified

The smile that disarms evil

A hug that is pure and true.


Sacrifice immeasurable

The gift to a depraved world

Benevolence undeserved

The love that ushered eternity.


Friendship unblemished

Taking nothing; giving everything

Sharing without strings

From a kind to a grateful heart.


Christmas is forgiveness exemplified  

A commitment to compassion

Serene presence of a soothing heart

The gift that gives ALWAYS.
