The Yellow Rose of Friendship

This yellow rose of friendship
a tie between two friends

Someone to give me a hug
When life seems at an end

Someone who understands
all my hopes and fears

Someone who is there
and wipes away my tears

Someone who knows
of my sad loss

Of my best friend
so far away has gone

someone who knows
Why I am so forlorn

Someone who has seen
my ocean of tears

Thank you is not enough
For you. my friend

You're here

Last few words: 
This was in four verses It was not intended to rhyme Here is the result. Blue Lost so many souls now it is hare to move on.

thank you to a great friend! Nothing to crit.~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

is a hard thing to endure. Doing it alone can be dangerous. Even one good friend will ease the sorrow we feel when one is lost. I never managed to find another true friend after the loss of my own many years ago. Of course, we lose people and get support from others around us in sympathy, but sometimes, we bear the true loss ourselves.

A yellow rose is a good place to start.

"Your" should be "You're" ie, "you are"


. like my lost dreams...the flood

Love the ending, as a stand alone line
