As I was clearing off my desk earlier this week I came across this poem that my dear friend Sonja wrote to me many years ago. And even more precious is that I have a copy written in her own handwriting.
You and Me
A ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.
You give me joy.
I tell you all my sorrows,
You laugh with me,
cry with me
pray with me.
And you never tire.
You never say no when I want to talk.
I often yell and seem impatient…….but please
Don’t think it’s because I don’t care
The love I have for you is as deep as
Anything between two friends can be.
People say someday we’ll
Maybe that’s true
But in our hearts, we’ll always
Be close together.
Our paths may separate
We’ll go our different ways but
One day we’ll meet again in a
Place far from here
A place made especially for friends
With dreams and
For other people who love each other as
I love you.
