I have this friend…

I have this friend, from a long while ago,

Quiet, with few words but weighty;

Shy with a fragile body that belies great strength beneath

And with such a lovely smile, never fake,

Always reaching the eyes, with cute dimples!

 

I have this friend from a long while ago,

Who never ceased to tell me how talented I am;

Even when, this ‘talent’ was only a seed

And my attempts were the beginnings

Of a child learning to walk- wobbling.

 

I have this friend from a long while ago,

Whose words of encouragement were never few,

Who has stayed true throughout the years;

A steady presence cheering me on,

Knowing that I needed to hear those words.

 

I have a friend from a long while ago,

Who said to me “I believe in you”

Words that help when I am blue,

Words that go ahead to wear the clothes of action;

True friendship is always in deeds.

 

I have a friend from long while ago,

Who has stayed true till date;

A steady flame, never going dim

Despite the barrier of distance and time;

True friendship never really dies.

I have a friend, from a long while ago,

Who is a year older today;

A jewel in a man’s crown,

And a treasure in my heart;

And I celebrate her today.

 

Happy Birthday Olabimpe!

Many happy returns…

Wishing you lots of things…

Wishing you God,

And His fullness!

    Wow… I’m just seeing this, and I’m humbled. I wish I have the fine words to express the feelings in my heart right now; but we’re not all poets. This I’ll say though: “You made my evening. Thank you.”
