What made us friends in the long ago?

Years ago I bought a card that had a poem on it. I kept the card and memorized the poem. Today I dedicate it to a dear friend as a birthday poem, a friendship poem and words that will hopefully make you and all my readers smile.

What made us friends in the long ago
When we first met?
Well, I think I know.
The best in you and the best in me
Hailed each other because we could see
That always and ever
Since time began,
Our being friends was part of the plan.

Happy New Year!

A new year, a birthday.birthday girl
A blank slate, a new way.

What will unfold, what will it be?
Who will I meet? Who will meet me?

In the course of the year I’ll continue to grow,
I’ll dance under stars and walk in the snow!
