| Shelly's Poem
|Shadows fall across the yard,
As another day draws to an end;
I quietly review the recent past,
And about my new found friend.
How she makes me feel so good,
Whenever she is close by;
A sensation of serenity,
And here are my reasons why.
Even when we first met,
I felt a special kind of bond;
When offered up the chance,
She didn't hesitate to respond.
Lazy mornings became our time,
To build upon our goal;
Of creating a new friendship,
And talking soul to soul.
Long at last we finally met,
Sharing time face to face;
I can say from this day forward,
She's earned, in my heart, a place.
Years will come and surely pass,
And many shall fall by the way;
But good friends last a lifetime,
As shall we, forever and a day.
