The Timelessness
Of Friendship

The roots of friendship and love
run deeper than the shallow,
temporary subjectivity, and
superficial facade that we wrap around
 the ego of our need for acceptance
by casual acquaintances, and the
occasional hand waving 'Hello'
of the passer by.

The strength of love and the glory
 of friendship, true to themselves,
are unbending, boundless bonds
of eternal power.
Soft as the gentle touch
of a feather on the cheek,
wistful as the memory of a long
 forgotten song,
yet more potent than
Prometheus unbound, or
stalwart Hercules and his labors of 12.

Forged and tempered
in the wake of forever,
 love and friendship,
true only unto themselves,
are unbreakable bonds of time unerring.

Touch The Wind sung by Nedine Blom



Touch the wind

I woke up this morning and my mind fell away
And looking back sadly from tomorrow
As I heard an echo from the past softly say
Come back, come back, wonít you stay?

I wanted to reach you,
 let you know I still care (I still care)
And lost in the silence of my sorrow
I put a promise in the wind, on the air
To fly away to you there

Touch the wind,
catch my love as it goes sailing
Touch the wind and Iíll be close to you

(Touch the windÖ) Iíll be easy to find
(Catch my love as it goes sailing)
On the winds of the morning
 Iíll come sailing

(Touch the windÖ)
Iíll be easy to find
(And Iíll be close to you)
Baby, Iíll be close to you

And only forever can I say I love you
And only forever have I lost you
But only a dreamer could wake up as I do
And hope itís still yesterday

(NanananaÖ nananana naÖ)

Touch the wind,
catch my love as it goes sailing
Touch the wind and iíll be close to you

(Touch the windÖ) Iíll be easy to find
(Catch my love as it goes sailing)
On the winds of the morning
 Iíll come sailing

(Touch the windÖ) Iíll be easy to find
(And Iíll be close to you)
Baby, Iíll be close to you
