Friend of mine loving and learning…here are her thoughts 🙂
As I get to know them,
As I’m given the privilege
of the title ‘friend’,
I see them.
I see the leaders in this community,
This group of friends
who live on the streets
near my home.
I see the carers, the protectors
I see those who share what little they have
I see those who sacrifice their safety for their friends
I see much to respect and much to love
I see less difference between us
And more in common.
Stopping to chat
Sharing news, a joke, a prayer, a crossword.
As I spend time with them
They see me too
They appreciate my friendship
more than what I could give them
And they very rarely ask for anything.
Sometimes I’m listening to their hearts
through slurred words
Which before would have been all I’d hear
But I can understand why they sometimes choose that
There’s much to want…
