Legend of Two Friends

Live life big worth living.  Give love for just the giving.

And when you see a sad face, extend your arms to embrace.

Take time to tend the flowers. Sit and talk for hours.

Yeah, show the one you’re thinking of, just what you feel about love.

***

Refrain:

A legend is told about the hearts of two friends,

Scattered by time and the four winds.

Their lives took them far,

But, sure and rare as falling stars,

Their spirits still remain, wherever they are.

***

Don’t wait to say I love you.  Take time to help a friend through, through the joys and

even sorrows. Let’s make it through tomorrow.  Together makes it better, withstanding

any weather. And when the going gets tough, our love is always enough.

***

Refrain:

A legend is told about the hearts of two friends,

Scattered by time and the four winds.

Their lives took them far,

But, sure and rare as falling stars,

Their spirits still remain, wherever they are.

***

Take time to call a friend.  Talk it over, make a plan.

The message you’ll be sending, tells friends they’re never ending.  Take time to meet for

pleasure.  Give love that can’t be measured.  And don’t you hold the heart strings,

But hold the joy that love brings.

Refrain:

A legend is told about the hearts of two friends,

Scattered by time, and the four winds.

Their lives took them far,

But, sure and rare as falling stars,

Their spirits still remain, wherever they are.

Tag: 

But , sure and rare as falling stars,

Their spirits still remain, wherever they are.

Oh, Friends Will Never be Forgotten!

As I sat and pondered today, I realized my expression of writing had gone away.  I had allowed greeting cards, facebook, and e-mail to take my place.  If I mailed a greeting card, I might get one back at the appropriate time.  If I posted a witty comment on facebook, I might check to see if it was liked.  If I sent an e-mail, I might worry about an ink-stained word that had dried on a line.

Oh, I just want to write!

A pen is a pen but it could be used to write a line.  It could be used to write the thoughts that are on your mind!  The ink could be black or blue, or occasionally red.  It all depends on the message you want said.  The message could start with Dear, or Sir, or It’s Me Again! There’s lots of ways to write to a friend.

Oh, the ways just never end!

I could have sent you an e-mail and eloquently mastered each and every line, but who has that kind of time?  But, rather, I choose to write straight from the heart, true as blue, from me to you. You may be across town or even in another country or state.  No matter where you are, the distance between us lays in wait.

Oh, the waiting, I just hate!

I saw a quote on the wall of Sam Walton’s Sam’s that I chose to think of friends.  Something like: “It’s not what you gather in life that counts, it’s what you scatter that matters!”  I thought of our kindred hearts like seeds scattered by the winds.  Although our celestial horizons know the sun in the same or another time of day, my thoughts of you are never far away.

Oh, the gift of a friend!

There’s just something about a friend that brings reflection.  I couldn’t let the old year end, or the new year begin without confiding in you, my affection.  You may be the friend who called me on the telephone, or the friend who sat and listened to me, so I wouldn’t be alone.  You may be the friend who presented me with a designer card.  No matter the contact, whether in the distant, or even in the recent past, you’ve warmed my heart!

Oh, friends will never be forgotten!
