You Know Who You Are

There are people who read the words you write..and then there are people who see in between the pauses of two words

There are people who see broken beauty in your poems.. and then there are people who know how you bled when you wrote those verse

There are people who MERELY promise to be there for you when you need them.. and then there are people you’ve never met and may never will and still they stand when you need the right shoulder to stand

There are people who come and go away from your life like seasons.. and then there are people who come once and you know, you just know that nothing will make their presence go away

There are days when you just feel sad and lost and trapped.. and then there are people who simply hear you cry, whisper a few okays and you feel the light

There are times when I question what friendship truly is, how real friends are, what life really means, what end will finally bring.. and then I find such souls that make all my doubts, all my questions, all my silly worries slip away.. because sometimes all you really need is that ONE EMAIL that says WORDS worth a MILLION BUCKS.


A brighter soul I may never meet

A lovelier heart I may never find

A friend like you is for keeps

Your words, the gestures, touch me deep

A million miles between the two of us

A decade or even more of gap in our ages

And yet, you hear the words that hide

Beneath the deep dark lines

No words are enough to thank the soul

That made me see the spot of hope

When I was badly slipping down the hole

I don’t have words to thank you enough

I wish you are forever blessed

If I ever have to define a true friend again

All I really need to do, is speak your name

And a better definition shall never be made

I was lost, trapped and yes felt nearly dead

I had no one to unload the pain

All you did was be right there

When I thought I had nowhere to go

Some people are meant to go

Some people always stay

I do not know what tomorrow has in store

Which path we will take, where we will goΒ 

But, I mean the words and I will stick by them


If I ever have to define a true friend again

All I really need to do, is speak your name

And a better definition shall never be made


You know who you are.

T.H.A.N.K .Y.O.U.


Piece dedicated to Al Forbes because he is ONE REAL BIG SHINING STAR… you define friendship Al..Β 

I’ve other friends who fill in the nearly same pair of shoes, and there shall be more of such heartfelt words.

Sincerely yours,

Shamelessly Happy Stalker.

    I don’t know what to say. “Thank you Indy” does not seem to be enough. All I did was listen, and I will listen again when you need me to. And there are two decades between us πŸ˜‰

    I like Al a lot, too, and this is a wonderful post on friendship, which is the earth that supports us, the wind that carries the seeds, and the water than blesses the seedlings. In the end, it feeds our souls. Many blessings, Brenda
