Friendship Hiatus


Friendship Hiatus


Because of the busy nature of your life

No new seeds can possibly grow

Daughter, sister, mother and wife

It’s hard to change that flow.


As much as I want to jump on board

To germinate a sturdy seed

Talking about it strikes a piercing chord

That neither of us really needs.


All I want is a present friend at my side

To listen, hear and speak

With whom I can socialize and confide

Both when I’m strong and weak.


A busy gal can’t be a steady friend

Within a huge avalanche of deeds

With much regret my efforts must now end

As I focus on my needs.


I know one day there may be a change

To all the many, many roles you play

That new journey will be kind of strange

But I know you will find the way.


You are a blessing to those who know

An incredible angel from on high

Your heart and spirit will always glow

But for now I must step aside.


This is clearly not the right time to fight

Against what’s meant to be

You are daughter, sister, mother and wife

That is so very obvious to me.


Fare well my friend in all you have to do

Find silver between the frowns

My thoughts and prayers will be with you

Through all of your ups and downs.
