Journey With My Heart

Do you know what we have?
Something that time will never touch,
distance is no match for it,
we are lucky to have it as such.

Something simple, yet misunderstood,
in all of its honesty,
around my life I wear the pearls, of wisdom,
learned from its rarity.

Diamonds look dull lain beside it,
for some things, just cannot be bought,
dress me in rags and I remain rich,
in the treasure of what we have got.

Our friendship means so much to me,
words can only express it in part,
know that wherever you go in life,
you always journey, with my heart.
