A Friend That's Always There
If I could catch a rainbow I would do it just for you

And share with you it's beauty on the days you're feeling blue

If I could build a mountain you could call your very own

A place to find serenity A place to be alone...........

If I could take your troubles I would toss them in the sea

But all these things I'm finding are impossible for me

I cannot build a mountain or catch a rainbow fair

But let me be what I know best A friend that's always there.


I found this wee poem and thought it would be nice to share it with all my friends on GG wink.gif

That's really nice, Marg biggrin.gif

OMG Betty ye we bu--er ! BUT, how in the heck did yae write that rhmye sae quick?
OK, so here is my side of it !
Not in the Glasgae twang, So Be It ! ( I am a Sassanach )
But, today I met a lovely lady,
A Scot ( tho not from Glasgae)
But, a Scot, none the less, a true, true lady !
I looked upon her when first our meeting.

And as yea all say.. I was almost greetin !

I saw those smiling & bright blue eyes!
I was mesmerisesd, and prepared to compromise, as I am not oft prepared to do !!

But, here was a CELT, as my Papa had forewarned !
When yae meet them,
Night will turn into dawn!!
When yea eyes meet, Yae'll naer forget !
And naer a day will yae ever regret !

I think I met that person today !
MaryR, a nurse, YES!
But a great psychologist, I'd want to bet!!
Because, never before apart from my Dad,
had someone got to me & I knew I'd been had !!
She took me aside, & said calm down !! looked on my wrinkles ( had been borne from a frown)
She massaged my shoulders,my temples, and all that was stressed..
& Since losing my Mother, I felt truly carressed!!
Relaxed also, since God knows when !

& Then, I thought.. My God !
What is it that brings certain people together?
People talk of their families, the time & the weather!
We all have something in common I'm sure
BUT, call it clicques,culture, colour or race !
We do not even have a photo to face,
BUT ! there are some of us here whether on the GG, or any website that brought us together what may be !

I, for one will be eternally grateful !
For within the net,I have found a handfull
Of beautiful friends, I need not to name
For they know who they are, & they seek not fame
They are here for me, no matter what
And I for them, For that is what.. friendship is about.. is it not ?


The GG site for me has lost it's pace, no disrespect to you Martin, you have still kept space, for everyone that has surfed & found GG
It will sure go on forever as long as you have Betty !
I just want to thank you, for all that you've done
over the years & begun, to help people like me!
I, have found friendship, too numerous to mention
To name a few BETTY ! Catherine, Rena, OK GUYS ! liberation keeps you in retention !
But, thank you all from the bottom of my heart !
Because it wasn't for you guys the last 2 years I would certainly have fell apart !!!
Gemini
