The Journey

Come be my friend
Just for a while
Set sail with me
Just for a mile

Let’s see the world
Through different eyes
Discover truths
We thought were lies

Let’s trust our hearts
To know the way
To find the words
With which to pray

For fellowship
And peace and love
An olive branch
A snow white dove

Come be my friend
Just for awhile
Set sail with me
Just for a mile

  1. LOVING this! Love the repetition and the rhyme (awhile and mile; and the 2nd and 4th lines of each stanza). But most especially love the idea of two different beings sharing the trip and looking at things from two different viewpoints and enjoying! 🙂 Great response to the image 🙂


  2. A lovely friendship poem, Candy, with a rhythm and rhyme that evokes the movement of a boat on water, which is emphasisd by the repetition.You also involved the reader with direct address and, I would love to set sail with a cat and an elephant!


  3. it made me a little sad, when someone asks to be a friend, they must be so lonely but so generous with their spirit, you have created a bigger story from just that painting, wanting acceptance and offering so much from that friendship if only someone would have them.
