“In Friendship”

I write poetry. Some of it is, in my opinion, not too bad, while some is deliberate doggerel meant for humor, and some simply fails to qualify as “adequate”. We’re all imperfect.

The verse below is not great or epic poetry. It’s simply a verse, hastily written to use in my SCA Shire’s monthly newsletter “The Equinox”. It does, however, try to make a point. 😉

In Friendship

In friendship stand beside me when I stand,
And offer strength to aid me when I fall.
When needing succor, or a guiding hand,
Let your name be the first my heart may call.
If I am saddened bring to me a smile,
And offer laughter when soul is lorn.
Advise me when I falter for a while,
And tender comfort when my heart is torn.
If I am sickened, ailing, wish me well
And in my time of weakness offer strength,
That of our time I will have tales to tell
And years to measure loyal friendship’s length.
When I am lonely leave me not alone,
Nor yet desert me if I have not fame.
And when in turn you let a need be known
Then know, in friendship, I will do the same.
