Sometimes you meet special people
who remain close by your side
they begin to be familiar
make you bust with pride.

You determine they are like family
reliable when needs are such
dependant ,honourable, passionate
who love you very much.

Day by day you see them
or hear from them by mail
there to give you guidance
support that will never fail.

I am talking about my friend Viola
she has been a friend for years
together we have shared many moments
filled with laughter and tears.

Threats of serious health issues
in the past have been touch and go
she has battled without any worries
and still our friendship would grow.

Like a friend you can depend on
Viola has been there all the time
a strong and powerful lady
still beautiful in her prime.

I class this lady as family
and her immediate family too
although we have never met in person
I know her through and through.

So today as we celebrate family
On Amy and Lori's meme
we celebrate a wonderful lady
a beautiful friend, a dream .

Today I dedicate my Family Friday poem to the lovely Viola, we have known each other well over ten years, some friendships do not last that long, I class Viola and her family as my family and she does the same, you are all getting to know Viola with her wonderful comments on all of your blogs, she is always positive, never lets you down, so I am sure you will agree she is the best...

Happy Family Friday Viola xxx
