Loving Friends--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

Loving Friends

For those who have touched
my life in heart and soul,
I have been rewarded
in numerous ways.
I remember these dear friends
with a heartfelt love
and deep appreciation. 
How blessed to be connected
to the souls of caring people…
my path has not been easy.
But for those God sends my way,
life is made a little easier.
These are not just friends,
they are special people
who include me as part
of their family circle.

John W. (Bill) Williams is a retired language arts and children’s literature educator.  He lives in Martin, GA, where he stays busy with his art and poetry.  He has been published in a variety of venues.
