- True Friendship
My dear Supreme,
You are offering me
Your supreme Friendship.
How can I accept it?
You give and give and give.
A true friend gives something in return.
But what do I have to offer?
My so-called earthly achievements!
I cannot accept it.
Whatever I am offering
You may give back to me,
Wouldn't it be a nice game to play?
It would give me the greatest joy."
You have won,
My true Friend!
In this case give me as much as possible.
Some really good walking boots,
So that I can walk along Eternity's Road
Day and night.
"My dearest child,
In case you should ever change your mind
Don't hesitate to ask Me
For the fastest running shoes."
- Hello Doris,
I have become such a big fan of your poetry! I love them all, but I especially love the last line about asking for the fastest pair of running shoes.
