“My Spicy Friend”

Standard


Today I had a visit from a friend. 
As I opened the door came a gentle wind,
And the smell of spices followed her in.

I was reminded of the years that have passed us by.
The things she taught me that I could never deny.
How could I forget the herbs and spices of life. 
How to grow them and use them for their treasured delight. 

These are the things that she taught me to do.
To simple wear earrings if nothing else. 
And how to make strawberry jam to put on the shelf. 
How to share the good times as well as the bad.
To be who you are even when you’re feeling sad.

Our friendship has weathered the many years gone by.
As we tasted the herbs and spices of life.  
And who could forget the shared glasses of wine
For these are the things that get better with time, 
and I’m grateful to call you a friend of mine.
