A Friendship

Friendship view


Hello, how are you

It’s nice to meet you

Hope you are well

Hope all is ‘swell’.


Now let’s be done with clichés

I want to meet your true self

Let’s pull off our masks

Breathe deep and bask

In the freedom of truth and reality.


No clinging or neediness

Played out between us

Just an honest desire

To share some time.


Let’s talk about goals

Desires and solutions

Feel empowered, uplifted

Refreshed by each other.


Physical age is no barrier

Respectfully we chat and connect

No-one feels superior

Neither inferior.


We respect each other’s privacy

And individuality

We play no games or act out scenes

To manipulate and get our way.


When we say goodbye we disappear

Into our separate lives

Of love and work and pleasure

And soon again say ‘hi’.
