Among Friends

Day-by day, we live on earth.

Face-to-face and virtually, we greet each other.

Eye-to-eye, we often see.

Toe-to-toe, we engage in friendly competition.

Side-by-side, we work together.

Arm-in-arm, we walk along.

Hand-in-hand, we share life’s journey.

Moment-by-moment, we face life’s uncertainties.

Heart-to-heart, we know we are not alone.

❤ Happy Valentines’ Day! ❤

Happy Valentines’ Day to all my WordPress Friends


to my Best Friend, Robert!

    1. Happy Valentine’s Day to you, Preethes! Thank you so much for your kind words and your wonderful wishes. ❤

      I intended this as a poem about friendship and did not write it specifically for Valentine's Day. I thought it fit the holiday, so I went with it. "Desert Rose" was the Valentine I had written for Robert and posted early because I was not sure how his cataract surgery would go. I am so happy that he is doing great! He is my perfect Valentine! ❤

      Have a lovely week! ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Thank you, Cindy. ❤ May Cupid play you and yours a very pleasant visit for Valentine's Day! Robert surprised me with red roses. 🙂 I am so happy you like the poem and found it relatable. It was one of the poems I wrote while waiting during Robert's surgery last Monday. I wrote it about friendship, but it seemed to work OK for Valentine's Day too. ❤ Have a wonderful week!

      1. You’re so welcome Cheryl and thank you. Oh that is sooo sweet.. what a lovely surprise. It definitely was a lovely gift to everyone. You made the most of your time alright when he was in surgery. It was good to have something to occupy your mind and entertain us. It worked perfect. I will you too, thanks💖💖

  1. Quite a cute couple the two of you make. I always like to add foot in hand for all the times my Valentine’s has grabbed me/rescued me from the proverbial edge. My hopes this year we can experience each of those wonderful lines and get back to the sauce that makes humanity so special.

  2. Spending a day “Amongst Friends” is always a blessing… but today wears a special crown, especially for those bitten by the bug of love… I hope Cheryl, that both you, and Robert, milk the day for all it’s worth…!
