My Friend, My Secret

If I could find a way to say; of course, I can find a way to say…

I can reach from inside and smile
You see, you bring out the good in me
My heart beats at ease, every breath breathes
A calm that soothes, all pain disappears

Apart, I recall the past when last we were together
Think of when, the next will be, so often it hurts tender
With every note written then sent, a reply is a gift in the present
Like the sound of a jingle, when our voices get to mingle

This is for you, my friend, it’s not much, just words
The truth, words are all I have to offer
But, if they could be something to touch and feel
I wish just once, to kiss your lips, long and real
