My Distant Friend

My Distant Friend

Oft did I think that I was in my home --

A caring man who inside damaged be.

Yet by chance a soul came much like my own

Made me friend and with wisdom let me see.

I have accomplished much with improved sight;

My self-esteem, self-worth and yes, my mind

Have been dragged out into the open light

Because of one once unknown, now so kind.

Hard it is for me to say just how much

I admire this man who would take nothing;

Yet the best of friends are we now as such,

He who takes nothing and gives everything

And the damaged fool who made better than

Before thanks to this kindest, gentle man.

Good friend as such is hard to find. consider yourself a lucky man, as well as your friend, who is lucky to have you too, Alistar. You have  a kind heart as well as a kind mind. ~Dean

A wonderful tribute to a wonderful friend...  Yes, he has done for you.  But did you ever consider that his doing for you is as his doing for himself?  There is no imbalance.  You owe him naught.  He did good -- but such is the way he should do -- it's not a special thing really.  People SHOULD do the right thing -- by default.  It's wise to be thankful:  but that is not one-sided.  The friend is as thankful as you -- more...  what an opportunity come his way!  --David

My friend, who is much like yours, is Jesus.  Wouldn't it be something if we had a mutual friend?
very nice Gene
