Against all Odds

 In the quiet moments
you feel the call
(I know you do)
from a distance no
matter the miles between
it’s only one breath away
for hearts that beat
in time.

In disbelief
I questioned your reasons
held on fast to the dream.

Paths took different twists
and turns whether they were
dark to light, wrong or right.

(Que sera, sera)
What will be, will be.

The secret to keeping love
is to be brave enough to
let it go.
Holding on too tight
breaks those fragile wings
that love gives us
to fly.

Laughter draws me into
its depths
a heart could sink or swim
in its tuneful melody.

Friendship walks hand in hand
with love and understanding
still holding on
against all odds and time
that stands between.

  1. yes the wings that love provides are quite fragile but so heady a feeling when you do use them 🙂

  2. A lot of messages through the poem and well put too!! Loved the last one on true friendship!! In the end it is Que sera sera!!

  3. isn’t it amazing that when you meet up with a good friend you haven’t seen for decades, it’s like you were never apart?
