I've been writing for over 40 years. I enjoy meditation and am interested in both western and eastern spiritual practices.

When friendships dissolve
"Rift On The Hill" by Yvon
There's a rift on the knoll that bore their friendship
Words that caused dismay
Turmoil on the hill
It still sits there today

Friends looking for an answer
The rift widens, now a gap
Held together by subtle threads
Each morning a new thread snaps

Time does not always heal
It can also take away
The truth of Love and Joy
That these friends felt everyday

Forgiveness is the answer
The mending balm of all
Alone these friends are missing
The Joys, the big and small

Still the rift is there
As this friendship slides down hill
The knoll that bore their friendship
Must suffer their stubborn will

Just a hand to reach out
One that lets go of guilt
Will close this creeping gap
And cause the rift to wilt
