Together We Stand
by: JP Leddy
Laughter skips into our memories
as we drink together and toast
with flowing liquor in crowded watering holes
to our shared stories of love won and love lost
We jest not to hurt our hearts so tender
but to lift our frowns to smiles
so that we can help each other face
life’s blows and ever coming trials
We are simply friends , tried and true
who love each other, even when it hurts,
through all our foibles and mishaps
we remain loyal, no matter who diverts
“One For All
All For One”
Together We Stand!”

i have friends like that who stood by me through thick and thin, through sobriety or intoxication. they remind us how to enjoy life when a simple smile seemed daunting. this is a lovely tribute to enduring friendship.
