Have I told you lately

Have I told you lately

A Poem by JRB

a love needs friendship to last,



Your friendship
Is what I truly treasure lately
You are more to me than just
Part of my life, a teacher, a lover
Most of all

You are my friend


The person with whom
I dare to be myself
I need not wear a face
To be what you are

For my soul is naked

In front of yours


For better or worse
I am not a prisoner
In your world
I need no guard
I think what I say

 I say what I want


You understand my contradictions
Where other misjudge my intentions
Your loyalty sparks my resources
There is no abuse, neglect, or putting up with
I can, keep silent to myself
And fear not, my stillness


For you have lit the torch
At the entrance of my hidden grotto
That my friend only a few have done
You are so special to me
You have shown me something
Very important


You have shown me the way
To myself
  That state of mind
More than anything has
For that I thank you my friend
I love you


I hope that you know that
Of course you do
because I do
I love you for that reason

many more
