"The Gardener"

Have you one dear friend, who can soothe your every pain?     

A friend who goes beyond a lover standing in the rain;

In ways so unexpected, I found a friend like this,

and o'er the years she's been there like an angel's silent kiss.

She turns over the earth!  How she causes it to sing!

She understand the seasons and the changes that they bring;

Is there a gift as great as bringing one small seed to bloom?

be it in the grandest garden, or the window of a room.

To me she is The Gardener, traveling far and wide

reaching those who call for her, she rushes to their side;

N'er could I imagine my life without her in it -

if they gave awards for having heart, my Gardener, she would win it.

In life we are blessed if we can find a friend like your gardener, i would say you are blessed, luddie.  Then, I would have to say your Gardener is also truly blessed you see you are a friend who listens, has compassion and caring and humour which helps when one is down.  You too are a rare flower in a gardener's life.

This is very beautiful - the words obviously come from your heart and maybe beyond?  Sounds like a person you may only meet once in a life time - and you were the lucky one!  It feels to me like this is not just a "friendship", but if you both give yourselves a chance, it could be a forever relationship. Something you might consider one day down the road.  Sounds to me like you belong together.

Gosh!  Seems like I am the only one that came up with a lengthy comment!!  All the rest say "Nice Poem, Cathy"  "Good Job"  "Very nice", etc.  Wondering if I am a bit out of line here??  Maybe I am just being wordy?  I sort of smile at myself - I think I will ponder this over and get back with you.  It iust might be my state of mind?

I made a previous comment on here about this poem and the beauty that came from it.  This appears to me like Luddie has found a friend in life that means so very much to her, this friend can be many things, but most importantly this person is there for Luddie they ease her pain, still her fears, calm her when life takes some bad turns.  Reaches out their hand whenever it is necessary.  Luddie is a very blessed person in my eyes and in turn her friend is also very blessed as Luddie is one of the special people in this world.  Continue your poems my friend they are brilliant, they come from your heart and soul and this to Gemini, it does not matter if you write a long comment or if u just say, very nice I am sure all who read this appreciate very much the lovely words Luddie wrote about her friend.  God bless you Luddie.
