A Universal Message

someone who can

use a single image

to send a universal

friends are forever
concerns support each other
feelings that are shared

staying young with memories
while growing old together

.

Poem:

.

friends stay young with memories
while best friends grow old together
richer than gold friends fill our treasuries
friends forever, regardless of the weather

some every day, some just once in awhile
a good friend shares both the best and the worst
a true friend never tires, mile after mile
for friends the roles are never reversed

to have a friend, be a friend
selfish, self-centered  never works
it’s not the money but the time we spend
two friends can be a large network

a stranger is just a friend we have yet to meet
a cold shoulder is a definite sign of unwelcome
something in common makes a friend complete
what works is a smile, a word of welcome

no expectations, just be a friend
for the moment or for a lifetime
just accept what God intends
and if you are real lucky,

you will have a friend to the end.

Sweetly Played

“My love is like a red, red rose

My love is like the melody

That’s sweetly played in tune.

Poem:

.

headache from the rap music
a generation to be hard of hearing
definitely not thinking lucid
only to the most primal endearing

trying to exercise some tolerance
watching the noise flaunt their money
trying to ignore their arrogance
so too serious that it is almost funny

tattoos crying I have no self esteem
what’s with the pants down to the knees
negativity, hate and killing a major theme
a vocabulary that doesn’t include thank you or please

whatever happened to decent moral values
with less gratitude they expect more
it seems that the shock value is what really sells
words and actions almost impossible to ignore

respect is demanded, never earned
banging, clanging rap is even in the commercials
sitting at the red light all heads are turned
twenty four seven they live in the rehearsals

thank God electronics have saved the oldies
what is gold and platinum shall never tarnish
styles of music that won’t ever need apologies
listening to sweet melodies that most can cherish

tunes you can hum, words that convey love
maybe even a beat that you can dance to
poetic lyrics sung by angels from above
patience, the evil shall meet their waterloo
