My Miracle

Years and years since then have passed

when I have met this person last.

Time went by all in a blur

It’s natural, we all do concur.

**

With the chances nowadays

Communication takes new ways.

One day I couldn’t trust my eyes

I got a friendly big surprise.

**

A request to be on my list of friends

right here this long silence ends.

It didn’t take us long to greet

And then – he swept me off my feet.

**

He makes me smile, the skies are blue,

The sun is shining, I enjoy the view…

All colors are so bright and clear

Life is great and I’m to cheer.

**

Tall and handsome, he’s a knight

In his arms I fear no fright.

Our bond is just about to start

but this warrior is anchored in my heart!

I have friends from lots of areas of my life, from acquaintances that I know through others, to those who know my deepest, innermost thoughts and who have been with me through my happiest and darkest times. Some I have known for over twenty years, others I have met in the last year. A few are school, college friends or university friends, some are former colleagues, one or two I even met randomly while standing outside a pub having a cigarette. I will speak to some just four or five times a…
