A Friend

By Jaken Steele

I sit on the beach in solitude
Alone with my thoughts
The sun begins to rise

I watch the colors blend
A breathtaking sight to behold
Beauty in its purest form

You quietly sit beside me
I look in your eyes and smile
No words are needed

We both realize at once
Beauty is all around us
One needs but to look

We rise and begin to walk
I softly take your hand
Your eyes smile at me

Sharing the same need
Our call was heard
Both of us receiving our request…a friend
