What’s Left?



What’s Left?

What’s left to say, my friend?
You’ve been there through it all
In the challenging times, a God-send
In the joyful moments, a doll!

You are light in the dark,
Illuminating every dismal place
On my heart, you’ve left an indelible mark
I am ever grateful for your smiling face

What’s left to say, my friend?
You are the roots of my joy
Of laughter that seems to never end
Of fun that shouts “oh boy!”

You listen and bring constant hope
To situations that are a deep pit
When I cannot seem to cope
You accompany me through it

What’s left to say, my friend?
You are generous, wise, and kind
Not even for a minute I pretend
That such a dear one I did simply find

Most of all, you know my heart
The real me, the imperfect me
You inspire me to be loving and smart
When doubt is all I can see

What’s left to say, my friend?
You are everything to me
I have loved you to the very end
With you, life has been glorious and free



Reflection Questions 

Who has been a faithful friend in your life?

What have you never said to that person that you need to?


Creator, you give us amazing friends that we sometimes do not feel we deserve. We thank you, Lord, for the gift of these soulmates who bless us in so many ways. Amen.

About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
