Song From Jonathan

10 Feb

I  wonder what ever happened to honor among friends?

I know you and I are more like brothers, sealed by the blood till the end.

Yesterday the angels told me, what you have done for my boy.

Even my new heart skipped a beat, can’t explain this heavenly joy.

Remember when you took on that giant? Oh, the surprise in my daddy’s eyes.

I’m sorry he became so defiant.  I always said he had too much pride.

Do you ever wield my sword in battle?  Or, still strapping that one of a kind?

Here – nothing resembles a shadow. Closest to a regret is leaving family behind.

But, it’s not over yet, we will always be friends.

They say it was a match made in heaven, and I’ll soon see you again.

But, don’t do anything to hurry,  I’m here forever so don’t worry…

Forever never ends.

Heard you got yourself a new wife.

After you saved the Ark of the Covenant.

I know I could never repay you, for the kindness you’ve shown Mephibosheth.

But, if you were here man, I would So give you a big kiss.

You always were so full of grace and kindness.

But, David, you’ve never even dreamed of anything like this.

Words can’t begin to describe this true heavenly bliss.

But, it’s not over yet, we always will be friends.

They tell me our friendship really was made in heaven.

And, I’ll soon see you again.

But, don’t do anything to try and hurry – I’m here forever,  so don’t worry.

Because forever-Never ends.

    My favorite line: “Here – nothing resembles a shadow” — excellent!

    I so loved this… Quite creative. The brotherly love David and Jonathan have is quite an endangered dimension of love. I really liked the way you poetically captured their relationship.

Thank you so much. That is very nice of you.
