A Banquet of Flower

When looking at my lovely bouquet,
of friendship 's faces.
Picked from so many,
wonderful and different places.

It suddenly came bursting ,
with such delight.
How each one made up,
a most beautiful sight.

Though it has taken, my life time,
to add each one.
I know that still yet,
my task is not done.

For I shall continue to gather,
along life's pathway.
More radiant faces,
that I shall display.

But dear FRIEND!
This I want you to know.
It will be your flower,
the first that I show.

Thanks, for all the memories,
both of laughter and tears.
They will always be with me,
throughout the coming years.

--Martha D. Manley
