Sometimes life is hard to bear, when a friend is not there.

This poem originally was published in Friendship Poems

Between The Miles
Because existence can become severe
in one day,
just sense me and I'll be there.
In the minds eye,
I'm not so far away.
If you hold out your hand,
in the whispers,
I'll become the zephyr.
and besiege you.
If your eye's upon the stars,
in the crystalline darkness,
I'll become the moon.
And the light shall guide you.
If you rest upon the ground,
in the warmth,
I'll become the grass.
And embrace you.
If you turn outside,
in the wetness,
I'll become the rain.
An upon your forehead, kiss you.
If you free the air,
in the light of day,
I'll become the sun.
And smile for you.

Between the miles-
if you need me.
If you need a friend.
Let me be the friend, I want to be.

    I couldn't have said it better myself than the words did in this poem. My best friend just moved away to college, and I sent it to her because it reminded me of her. It really touched me, and I know it will do the same for her.

    The voice speaks in this poem. The longing and offering of connection feels more personal.
