The  Eyes of a Friend

 Through the Eyes of a Friend

To be seen through the eyes
of one who looks past your flaws,
to be held in esteem
or perhaps even awe.

To elicit great joy
when you come through the door,
to be valued as priceless,
perhaps even more.

These are the values
contained in a friend,
loyalty, acceptance,
true to the end.

Expressed as forgiveness,
not holding a grudge,
selfless, protection
or a soft gentle nudge.

The eyes of a friend
are selective, thatís true,
choosing to see
the best thatís in you.

Revealing inside
an unconditional love,
much like the eyes,
of our Father above.
