My Sweet Friend – A Poem

Who taught my weary soul to smile,
and helps me go the extra mile
whose arms of love make me agile?
My sweet friend.

Who gives me pleasure in my pains,
and holds my hands in tough terrains
till I harvest sweet golden grains?
My sweet friend.

Who never leaves me in distress,
and always lifts me out of stress
who always sows seeds of kindness?
My sweet friend.

Never will I this gem deny!
whether I fall, fumble or fly,
our lovely bond will never die.
My sweet friend.

Under the sun and in the rain,
in fiery furnace and fountains
our love will rise, radiate and reign.
My sweet friend.

I love converting happiness and hurts to hymns, I love turning pain and pleasure into poetry. Today, I decided to turn the tales in my head into tributes, eulogizing every sweet soul that has been a blessing to me. Thanks to all my sweet friends and family.

  2. A great post.
    True friends are amongst God’s greatest gifts to us.

    Someone said : ‘ A true friend is someone who knows all about you, and loves you anyway.’ πŸ€—

  3. Glowing with love, adoration and affection, beautifully composed thoughts Adeleke, overflowing with appreciation and thankfulness, detailing the honey in a great mate, friend, lover and the glory of friendship and marriage, walking a road together.
    Breathtaking in fragrance of milk and honey.

  4. Aww.. Fabulous! Very well expressed. Liked all your poems. I also have sweet friends. I have shared my secrets with them and as we can say that they’re my secret box. And they are very caring. They treated me well when I was sick and also they helped me in many things. We always were be together. I trusted my friends very much. And they are my back bone. And they supported me every well in everything. Many problems came but we solved just in one word sorry. And now I realised that they are fake. Now friendship broken. I forgave them many times. But, now I’m not ready to do that. While I’m reading this poem I thought of my friends. But this poem is really fabulous. I got a new friend. You know who is that?

    1. Awwww!

      Life is different strokes for different folks. Friendship comes with its pains and gains, but we should never stop being kind and friendly.

      I am sorry about your friend’s attitude. I hope you meet more good people who love you for real and never betray you.

      I am so glad you have a new friend. Now you leave me guessing πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„.

      You seem to be a sweet and adorable soul. I appreciate youπŸ€—
