I Would Still Be Your Friend


If I had only seen you face,
In this or any other place.

I would still be your friend.
If I had only heard your voice,
Amid the universe of noise.

I would still be your friend.

If I had only read your words,
In full or only just one third.

I would still be your friend.

If I had only known your thoughts,
From all the people you had taught.

I would still be your friend.

If I were near or all the way blind,
And could only see you in my mind.

I would still be your friend.

If I had only briefly met your soul,
Heart and spirit; the person whole.

I would still be your friend.

And if you weren’t so beautiful,

While I mightn’t be so dutiful.

I would still be your friend.

But I am blessed for I have seen,
And heard and read, and to that very end.

I am now and will forever be your friend.
