The touch of friendship
is gentle yet solid
Its balm ordinary
yet potent, like those of Gilead
Its soft flame pierces deep
to lighten and brighten
the darkness of our sad moments
its abiding gentle glow
reveals and enkindles torches of love
hope, health and happiness
Always present even
when not there
beyond, above and astride
borders, ages, sex and climes
defying latitudes, shrinking longitudes
friendship floats like a soft feather
but cuts deep like a sharp knife
enabling and ennobling
those it touches and caresses.
