And Around The Bend
Is Where We Will See The Village Tapestry
So often when I think of you
and all the times we shared
My heart is filled with thankfulness
to have a friend who cared
Enough to listen to me
tell of joys and trials.
You're being there has been enough
to change my tears to smiles.The subtle love between two friends
is so hard to define.
It is not a square or circle
or even a straight line.
It's somehow like a tapestry
with colors soft and bold
Yet deep within the weaving
there are tiny threads of gold.Yes, rare and oh so lovely
are your friendships' threads of gold.
For they will last a lifetime
and then when my story's told.
Someone will hold my tapestry
and turn it towards the light,
And tiny points, those threads of gold
will gleam and shine so bright. And they may think it's just a thread
like green or red or blue
Perhaps they'll never ever know
that golden thread was you.
But I've been thinking lately
how you've touched my life just so
Of how you are so dear to me
and I wanted you to know
That even if you're next to me or
though we're miles apart
Your golden thread of friendship
still will weave within my heart.
