FRIENDS

There’s nothing like a walk you know
To calm a troubled mind;
For worries like the air we breathe
It seems we leave behind.
It doesn’t matter where we walk
Our spirit to defend.
It will be much more pleasant though
If we walk with a friend.

A friend can help to bear the weight
That’s really got us down.
The love of friends is all we need
To melt away our frown.
A friend relieves the pain as well
That stimulates the tears.
To be held close when ‘darkness’ falls
Will banish all our fears.

The walk through life can be so long
For those without a friend.
Increasing isolation though
Seems now to be the trend.
We shouldn’t have to look for friends.
They should be part of life.
There’re difficult to find because
Our lives are full of strife.

To ease the strife is difficult.
God help us make amends
So we create a life in which
We’re all each other’s friends.

Yes,
Even if the friend is an internet acquaintance, the walk is made more valuable by complemetary takes on the territory.

Indeed Ierrellus, we have become good friends. There haven’t been many but the quality is far more important than the quantity.
