Friend

autumn

 

Friends are an important part of our lives. They become our extended family, our confidante, making our lives fuller.

Trusting in you, my friend
In so short a time was easy
Loving you more each day
Is the joy that fills my heart

My fears and problems I’ve brought to you
And criticise and complain you did not
Instead, lovingly you’ve listened and helped
To make me believe in myself

Special you’ve made me feel
A hug you gave me when I needed one
You gently remind me of another
Whom I’ve sometimes forgotten about

But your assurance that he’s always there
Makes it easier for me to trust
In the most loving friendship
Between Jesus, you and me

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
