I heard her play the saxophone
outside the jazz club
oblivious to her surroundings
she seemed focused only on her music
I felt captivated and enraptured by her blues.
I wondered what kind of life she lived
to play such music
that was soft and kind
yet penetrated my soul.
Convincing someone that your words holds value
such as trust, faith and love
is a mountain to climb in itself
especially if you lost their trust.
The only remedy it seems
is to start from the beginning
and build from there
and if you are lucky
you can eventually regain
their faith, trust and love.
It might not be like it was before
but hopefully a lesson can be learned
and that some wisdom was gained.
If you are lucky
to meet a friend who listens and understands ,
and who supports you wholeheartedly
with no hidden agendas
hold on to them and be grateful.
Some of the people who we come across in life
are lessons wrapped in a physical body
such as betrayal, anguish, temptation and misunderstanding
not to say all lessons are negative or positive
but it is life’s way of saying
‘Hey did you get my message ‘
and if you meet those kind of people
that make you smile, laugh, and have good vibes
appreciate them and let them know as well,
because genuine friendship is something really precious.
