The Power of Friendship

New poem inspired by Fernando Pessoa in English smile emoticon
My heart still beats
Thou I fear is cold.
Too many stories
Experienced and told.
Life unfolds
And either gives,
Or takes its toll.
But, it goes on.
I fear not
A damaged heart.
For without it
No life
Would I have seen,
In no stories
Would I have been.
If the sun
Cannot warm
And heal it,
No doubt
Friendship
Shall soothe
And appease it.
