Poem for a friend

Sunlight's rays pierce the water.
A fine mist rises from the solid mass.
This is his essence.
A baby laughs and coos.
Its happiness shakes the air and energy flows to all who listen.
This is his comedic side that only a special few can see.
A tree sways in a dance with the wind but its roots dig in.
Protecting the tree's core from bending too far.
This is his loyalty to others.
A boat sails gently only water.
Adjusting and shifting with the breeze.
This is his spirit that meanders through change fearlessly.
He is a rock.
He is hope.
He is my friend.

Have you written a poem for a friend lately?


  1. Very nice poem! Your friend will love it.

    1. He did love it! We went sailing together this past weekend. It was a dream.

  2. I wrote a poem for my girlfriend when we first started dating. She like it :) I love your poem by the way :)

    1. A poem for your lady, that's so Keith of you. I love it.

  3. Vanessa,

    What a lovely poem. How did you meet this friend? It's been a long time since I've written one for someone else. The last one was for my oldest son.

    1. Oh my goodness, If my Dad wrote me a poem I would cry like a baby. That's awesome Pablo. I met my friend through work. He is our IT genious.

  4. So beautiful Vanessa! You have a gift when it comes to writing poetry, my friend!

    I love this and I know that your friend will have the biggest smile on his face when he reads it!
