True & Constant | Big & Little

“True & Constant”

I fully believed those words,

One main reason I chose Nu.

I will always believe in the “4 Ls,”

I will be honest:

I did not want a Big.

Power of Friendship Poem | Farewell Oregon

My friendships made me feel love,

When I didn’t allow romance.

If you want to know me, read my poetry

I could write a million stanzas,

And still not convey what I mean.

Do you know me now?

Perhaps you know me as much as you can,

From a one-sided conversation.

When it’s one person speaking,

And another one listening along?


Is that a human connection?

One person listens to another.

Is that the reason we write?

Or is it just the start?

Of the mind,

And the heart.


One of friendship and radical acceptance, 

We met at very different places.

And yet, I saw my pain reflected.

More than, I saw my love reflected.


Ve’s presence fills you with happiness,

Even when you have none to give back.

Ve’s words fill you with hope,

Even when none seems possible. . .
