Stand By Me

Stand By Me

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

Love immortal and unchanging devotion spans the wall Over which we go exchanging our smiles with one and all

"


My wife Rebecca with her life's best friend Teresa


We seek a kind and faithful friend

devotions sweet flower

One who will stand by till the end

lighting the darkest hour

 

Love immortal thoughts exchanging

devotion scales the wall

There we share our love unchanging

with smiles for one and all

 

Her guiding hand which proves so sound

my inner soul to see

Oh may no friendship ever found

mean more than she, to me

Author's Note

Tate Morgan
To have a great lifelong friend is one of the greatest and most profound experiences. I would encourage all who have not done so to try it. The answer to all who would topple your life is the unwavering devotion of the great friend! Teresa, May we all know the wonder of the warm breeze that you bring to our lives. This the blessing that counts above treasure, built from the bricks and mortar of the small town and life spent running the fields together. Written for Teresa . Taken from my interpretation of my wife Becky's feelings for her.

That last stanza is poetic perfection. Immaculate. This whole piece is powerful and incredibly tender, you are so lucky to know love and to have been loved in this way... I enjoyed this poem very much, you're a remarkable writer, Tate. 1

Thank you Richard. I’m honored and humbled
You've captured the essence of a best friend in the lines of this poem. You said it best above "The answer to all who would topple your life is the unwavering devotion of the great friend!" If I can make any suggestion, it would be to get that quote into your poem somehow, either way it is a beautiful tribute to best friends.

Thank you Karen. A great friend is a great solace in times of personal loss
Indeed, friends for life are no different than family. To have someone like that in your life is a blessing. Excellent poem.

Well i have such a friend myself as well and i can tell you it lends value to ones life
you speak of walls that are more porous than mine so to know other walls exist is a comforting thought I guess? From my walls I exchange gunfire instead of smiles and maybe in my upper years I may change and use these words that you have penned to destroy these old walls so I can hang up your poem on the new one(s) that may or may not need to be erected? very inspirational write.....

Thank you Rico it is a great thing to have a friend that counts as family
That devoted friend, sibling of your heart… My son's godmother is the sister of my heart. I can truly attest that I would not be here today if not for her. This is a wonderful homage to those friends truer than family, more loyal than blood alone can create. There's something about the heart of a true friend… a kind of love story of it's own.

now this one makes my whole being just smile my head to my toes.. oh my... word..... This is honestly so dang awesome.. a best friend is someone who will be there for you no matter what.. Someone who knows all your secrets, who would do anything for you, and who loves you unconditionally.. you have captured that so well here... I am still in awe of your ability to pour the heart and truth so beautifully..
