This mixed media canvas was inspired by a poem called Friends Have A Song.
Friends have a song that they sing together
Whether they sing in mind or spirit
And though others aren't aware of it
Hearts in tune to each other can hear it
You sang with me when I felt like singing
There was joy in my heart and you sang along.
You continued my song when my heart was empty
When I forgot the words...you remembered my song!
I know that now your heart is aching
And singing is too much for you to bear
I will always be here for you
For in your every sorrow I will share.
Now my song is quieted by your sadness
And I softly hum for you
Praying as I gently hum our song
Prayers of healing just for you
In your sorrow dearest friend, I share
Feeling so strongly your fear and pain
And I shall stay in spirit with you
Until we both can sing again
We shall sing together when things are better
And once again our voices will blend
For our hearts are joined together
Heart to heart and friend to friend!
