The first thing I saw was your face
It's softness like a web of lace
I looked up into a smile sincere
And knew consequently my heart would adhere
The paths we walked would never blend
Like a lame horse broken hearts cannot mend
And as I watched you go away
I felt the words I could not say
But I see know within your eyes
The tears have washed away the lies
Life is beautiful when lived in truth
Existing not in the fantasy of youth
And as you place your trust in mine
Embraces of love shall intertwine
Wasted days forever gone
Together we face the upcoming dawn
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.
And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
~ Kahlil Gibran ~
Treasure of Friendship
I hold in my hands
A box of gold,
With a secret inside
That has never been told.
The box is priceless
But as I see,
The treasure inside
Is far more precious to me.
Today I share
The treasure with thee,
It is the treasure of friendship
You have given to me
Seduce my mind and you can have my body,
Find my soul and I'm yours forever.

Life without love is like a tree ~Without blossom and fruit.
~ by Khalil Gibran~
No stars were out this deathly night
Dark closed around me, though it was light
Looking for the gold paved road I lost my way
In desperation I searched for the day
The harder I probed, the more black I did see
I no longer could face the reality
Lower I sank, then fell to the ground
Trying to rise I was mercilessly bound
Cold and lonely, void of love
Wanting to reach to the world above
But afraid to achieve the uniformity
Of people the marionettes of society
My mind traveled though my body lay still
And through passage of time I discovered the will
And my reawakened eyes began to weep
I found the energy to leave my sleep
And though I my not be at peace till I die
Never again will I be ashamed to cry
I'm walking through a dark corrider
Searching for a ray of light
Or the opening of a door
But all I do is continue to walk
The hall wasn't always this dark
But one by one, they left this dwelling
They took with them my dreams
And left behind only shut doors
You can't expect too much from the masses
They bask and linger when the sun shines
But as soon as the light dims
They turn their back to the night.
I'm coming to the end, and the wall is in plain view
Looking for the passage to make my own escape
But alas! I don't have the same freedom as the people who come & go
For 'tis I that is sentenced to remain here for life's eternity
My mind stands on the edge of a bottomless pit
My soul is sinking into an illusionary grave
The web we wove has become unknit
I want to live, but I'm not that brave
Years ago, but not that long
I felt a safety in my plight
In my head throbs an endless song
And the darkness of the hallway lets in no light
The battle isn't over, it's still being fought
But every small victory is another sweet scent
Of the freedom I want, without heavy thoughts
Though the life I had, is all but spent
If only someone told me what the script was about
Unwittingly I assumed the part of the fool
Displaying quite some talent, without a doubt
Love directed my course, the outcome was cruel
As time beat on transformations took place
First rhythmic silence - then sweet whispered lies
Like a stumbling drunk, vision cloudy and blurred
I couldn't yet see through the depth of your guise
Your honesty a travesty so my love must be
Yet facing that fact I'd like to delay
When I let go of you I lose some of me
There's a part of me that wants us to stay
And many a night as I now lay awake
A void slowly filling the place you once filled
Though I face the folly of my mistake
Memories of yesterday will never be stilled
They light up the
trees in the nightime.....
Sometimes they watch over you as you're sleeping and
blow some dust down on you when magic is needed
