FOREWORD:

A very old poem I wrote about a friend. I stumbled upon International Who’s Who in Poetry and submitted it.

POETRY TEXT:

Mutual
Christopher Denq 2010

The chair you sit on when your legs are weak
The light in the dark when your eyes can’t see
The stick you use when your arms can’t reach
The hairpin when you can’t find the key

The pillow underneath when you trip
The rainbow after a violent storm
The spare when the first goes strangely lost
The handy jacket that keeps you warm

The paint that colors your picture
The dream that fills your fantasy
The companion here when you need
The power that keeps you ever free

The tag when you cannot find
The bottle that holds your glue
A friend, you cannot live without
And I can’t live without you
