Ode to a Good Friend

You are a great comfort dear friend,
to listen as I ramble this night.
I know my words seem to have no end,
and it appears no rest is in sight.

But your company is soothing to me,
and your presence an assuaging balm.
In the turbulent and stormy sea,
I’ve found an oasis of calm.
