Distance matters so much less
when the heart is truly blessed
with dear friends that rise above
the detritus of life's flood
waters flowing from here to there
rewarding those who choose to dare
to feel something more than dread
wanting joy to fully spread
those of like mind that insist
that life asks more than to exist
beyond a day that labored work
with a wage that circles back
something more than this treadmill
is the gift that dear friends bring
breaking chains and floating hearts
before the cycles ask all to depart.

The poem “Dear Friends” is a consideration of where friends fit into the treadmill of life.
