Michelle - My Dearest of Friends
My long time friend.
The one I met when we were children
Seven and Nine.
You have always been so full of energy.
So full of imaginative delights.
Your eyes sparkle with mischief and adventure.
Time spent with you has never been boring.
You have challenged me to try
And encouraged my efforts
Always my cheerleader.
You've always been one to back me up
Stand beside me when I needed the support
But never overstepping.
I know, without a doubt, that I can count on you
And you're always there to listen
When I need someone to just listen.
To just hear.... me.
You lift me up when I am down.
And we have been through so much.
A friendship of over 42 years.
Not many can claim that.
You fight for the underdog
Your quiet strength stronger than steel
Yet as soft and light as a delicate flower.
I am proud to call you my friend.
I just hope I can be, to you
What you are to me.
Everything you need.
Theme: A special face at Christmas. A loved one: a best friend, a child, a spouse, a parent. A person who is real; not a book character. Someone you see, if only occasionally. Someone alive. Write it TO that person, FOR that person specifically. Use their name as your title. IE: My husband - Ken or My Child - Rob. ( or some variation along those lines that gives the relationship in some form.)What do they look like? What about their face gives you joy? Makes you feel some emotion? (safe, warm, loved?) Tell us about them by how they look. (When looking at you, laughing etc.) NOT what they do, but what you see and how they make you feel when you look at them.
Words to use: no specific ones today.
Forbidden words: face, you, (changed my mind after an hour and a half trying not to use that word.) <---NOTE lined out word!
