About the Poem

A poem for a friend, far away. To show she's not alone.

White Rose

In the storm
Stands the white rose
tumultuous waves
of destruction abound her

Yet tall is the white rose
strong in the face
Of the sensed doom around her
And she does not bow down

Pure is the white rose
In the compost earth
growing eternal strength
in the nights that so hurt

I see not the white rose
She is so far away
But I long to protect her
But only the words can I say

So I send her my words
And my poets heart
To help her when
there is hope to see her through

Be Strong little flower
Your heart will guide true
And as long as you want
I will always talk to you

well, i was looking for a poem to send to a friend who left for the States before i even got to see her. we got to know each other accidentally through Friendster when she forgot to Log out her account. then i was th one who used the computer next. so there. She was heartbroken that time, so i kept sending her messages to comfort Her. And so i think this Poem is perfect. Thanx a lot for the one who made it, you just made two people happy.

This is an awesome poem and it touched me deeply. I find it amazins how you can relate your own life to a poem , such as I did to this one.
Deirdre
This is a truly a transpersonal piece that touches each individual in a different way. It will go right to the soul of a relationship and find the connections and they will immediately become tranparent. A piece worth more than just a look. A piece worth an award!

I loved your poem. It touched me deeply because it remineded me of my very first best frined that I met in Pre-School. I didn't see her for about 4 years. We finally saw each other again in the 3rd Grade. When we saw each other we were so happy and joyful. Then, two years later, I had to move again and I haven't seen her very often since then. But every time I read this poem I think of her and I give her a call. This poem makes me think that you once had a very special friend and had to move away from them. Or either they had to move away from you. Anyway, I think this poem is just great. You are a very excellent writer and I think there should be more poets like you in the world that know how to write down words and actually make them mean something. Thank you for writing that poem. It's a very special poem to Rachel and me and it always will be.
angie
hey i really like this poem
Kim
There are too many of us who go through life believing that we're somehow "less than". This poem goes a long way to remind each of us that just because we are beautiful, it does not mean that we are weak. Share this with every strong, beautiful woman you know.

Tabbethie
Your poem shows that you care about your friend alot. It is sweet of you to want to protect your friend even if she doesn't live anywhere near you. Your friend should be proud that she has a friend that wants to protect her even when she is not around you. Keep up the good work on your poems. I just have to say your friend is lucky she has someone who loves her as much as you. Thank you for your lovely poem, hope to see more poems from you. Bye!
Cynthia
In this sweet poem you tell about how friendship is above all odds are not in the mind when it comes to losing a friend over some thing stupid. You belive like I do! If you like them then don't just forget about who they are inside or how far away they are, just who they are on the inside.
Kemi
