Suzanne's Second Estate

A web log of my thoughts, activities, life....

Thursday, October 18, 2007


They'll drive you the airport,
that's 105 miles away,
on a work day,
for a smile.

They'll call you,
to say, "I was just thinking of you,
Can I pray for something?
Want to go to Dairy Queen?"

They'll make you dinner,
served on the good dishes,
during reality TV,
laughing about life and love.

They'll go to a musical with you,
even when they don't know the plot,
or own a killer bunny puppet,
or whistle.

They'll meet you for breakfast at 7 a.m.,
on the weekend,
when they don't drink coffee,
to listen in on your dreams.

They'll leave you a myspace comment,
to say, "It was nice seeing you,
talking to you,
even for a little bit."

They'll ride the bus for an hour,
to share a bagel,
and get a hug,
just because you're their friend.
