A Peaceful Friend
There is pleasure in the company of friends
Who can sit peacefully with me by my side,
Who can accept silence when the talking ends,
And in noisy places, we will never abide.
That a conversation will be of interest,
On topics that have meaning to you and me,
And afterwards we will have time to digest,
The ideas that our talking have set free.
That busyness will be just for a while,
Confined to those things we wanted to do.
So that afterwards, we can share a smile,
And let the peace of our friendship come through.
