A Poem by Marie Harrison

A poem about friendship.




Finding common grounds in the mind of another

Reaching out to touch the heart and mind of a fellow soul

Inviting one in for a steming cup of tea and conversation

Elation found in laughter and excitement of sharing

Needing a warm hand of comfort to hold to not feel so abandoned and alone

Deviating from yourself for the sake of another

Secrets swapped that are too sacred to share with outsiders

Happiness seen and felt in the smiles and hugs of another

Interest in hearing the opinions and humor as soon as possible

Power to draw us closer to our humanity.

Author's Note

Marie Harrison
Friends are so important to have in our life. They keep us grounded. They bring joy and connection into our lives. Learning to share and reach out to others develops our souls. Friends bring out the bright colors and accents of our personalities. Friends affirm our place in humanity. Where would we be without friends?

The last line is money. Worth the price of admission (which was free so that's not right...)
