Upon Seeing A Dear Friend.


Yesterday.
There was a road, and mist and hoarfrost.
A long road that leads me astray.


And we greet one another with tears when we meet,
grief cruelly holding your hand.


We walk arm in arm,
our silences as deep as our words.



And though the longest road lies between us,
my dearest friend, 
our story still has miles to go.

"Our silences as deep as our words"

You say so much in being there. The best support is touching a wounded soul. Not being afraid to use words wrong or right. Not being afraid to let silence say everything. Touch, hug, love and tomorrow. Angel wings are yours

I saw you over at Martin's place and popped in for a visit. I have loved these misty images and the misty eyed words that accompany them...
