Walking in the autumn, strolling by your side
I discover that neither crashing waves nor cloud filled sky
can dampen my spirits.
I am lifted in love through the words we share
of our joys, sorrows, hopes and fears.
We are the same inside.
We are connected by God, brought together by God.
Unseen angels surround us
sending God’s blessings upon our friendship.
The chill in the air cannot hold the blessings back
and we are warmed by them.
Just as the trees begin to let go
of their multi-colored leaves,
I realize that I too,
must release my hand
from it’s touch upon your sleeve.
As we turn to go our separate ways
I pray for many more seasons
to walk beside you, my friend.
