Silver Lining

Silver Lining

A Poem by aj milton

for a very special friend


I hate it when your mood is sad and lonely

I sense it when you’re low and feeling very down


I want to squeeze you tight and stroke your silky hair

To hold your lovely face and kiss away that frown


I understand your aching, your needing to belong

My voice to reassure you and tell you I’ll be there


That dark clouds get blown away by soothing wind and sun

I know that you’re a fighter, and inside you are strong


The grey times will get brighter, you’re not the only one

Your journey is unfolding, a path that will be shown


Places and people to fill your soul and make your day

New faces, new races, and moments to treasure


Tears and laughter, but through it all you won’t be alone

Because you have so much to give as you make your way

Beautiful poem of friendship. To be there for another not just when times are good but especially when they’re in pain. A true friend feels the happiness and sadness of someone they hold dear. Very well written.

A gentle caress of romanticism, tender in its embrace of the reader, and sweet like the kiss of a lover...

I read mostly fantasy and sci-fi, but as an author I write mostly Adult Romance / Erotica fiction. I enjoy reading poetry which touches my heart, but I'm not a poet, so don't expect me to critique .. more..
