God’s Gift of Friends--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

God’s Gift of Friends

What a great joy
to have warm
and spirited friends
who care when I am
lonely or sad;
if only one or two
I am inspired
by their words
of love and hope.
I rejoice that God
selected each of them
especially for me.

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.
