Defying Definition!


Can I call you a friend?
Because you’ll listen
to my ravings and ranting,
however inane
Because you’ll hear
the sorry unsaid.

Will I call you a friend?
Because you don’t see
my philanderings;
innumerable may be.
Because you don’t look
for those promises unkept;
that lack of sensitivity.

May I call you a friend?
Because you matter;
though senselessness pervades.
And I look around for you.
Because you’re the hold
while life rushes out from under my feet.

Friendship needs no barriers of promises... like love is unconditional

So very nice. One can have many friends, but a really true friend is like a rare diamond.

Nice one.However As funny as it sounds,barter is the crux of a true and viable friendship.'You lend me your ear,i'll lend you mine' principle.No one can deny it for all talks of unconditional-isms etc.

Id it is said...

zeitgeist,
Barter makes for a business partnership, whereas spontaneous giving makes for friendship.
Going with what you say would also make all business associates friends.

By the way 'id it is' reminds me of the Pearl Jam song 'I got id' :)

Yes, by all means call me a friend. God is giving me eyes to see beyond color, religion and cultural differences and my life is enriched by many people because of this... :o)

PS. I would be the orange flowery symbol.
