Dear Old Friend

By
J.Henry Foster


You can get attached to all sorts of things,

My word ,Iíll give you that!

Simple things-like slippers or shoes

Or even a battered old hat.

A cat, or a dog, or a well worn book,

A fishing rod, or a chair.

A pair of gloves, a treasured gift;

Or just a lock of hair.

It could be a jewel in a priceless clasp.

Or a simple band of gold.

A well worn purse, a picture or vase.

Or a letter from days of old.

But the nicest treasure,

That you can list.

You will find in the very end.

Itís a gift and a love,

you will always see.

In the face of a Dear Old Friend.
