For my Friend

If I could
make
create
into being
join together and
bring to fruition
I would

a live
fragile
wailing
being
just waiting for you
two

hold
rock
embrace
take home
love

instead
I can only
come alongside
and cry
beg
plead
pray
and trust
together
with you

that God
will hear
grant
and
bring into being
your most
heartfelt
desire

Lovely. This is the cry of many a heart for a friend. You're a dear soul.

A beautiful poem...I especially love "just waiting for you/two"

So honestly sums up how it feels to long with someone in tandem, to wish to have a way to fix the hurt.

Slowed my heart and mind. Made me feel an ache, like that of wanting an embrace.
