Fay Slimm







Close those bonds of friendly love,
tighter than ropes of steel
are tied fetters of harmony, proof 
that fate controls affinity.  

Born of ease with another
no weeds grow in felt relationships.

Empathy takes no offence, attacks 
weak traits knowing chains
made in destiny's fire do not loosen. 

Time severs doubt's fading threads
and for amity's sake,
makes firmer soul-mate attraction    
to strengthen sewn truth.

This soft hand of meant happiness
my friend, I offer to you.



  • Nicholas Browning

    I would take any hand that offers me hope in this world. A hand to hold in order to save, enlighten, love or hate. Your poetry is enigmatic as always, but it's how you carry the message along the words that makes your poetry so riveting I think. All in the timing Fay, and you've certainly mastered your style.

    This is so much about the coming together of new true soul mates i feel.
    Sharing the same views, motivations, joys and possibly destiny.... who could ask for more?
    A joy to read.... a hope renewed in the heart.... a smile in my soul.

    Most uplifting read of today and a must for my favourites.

  • Neville

    these words should be dedicated to special friends around the globe.. only the very most special of special friends though.... accepted, bless ya my friend.... N

  • Michael Edwards

    Love the way the words are woven and especially the line: Time severs doubt's fading threads .

    Super as always.

  • tepo

    Agree with Michael

    Hold on tight Fay

    Many thanks dear L.G. for saving this verse among your favourites.

  • LittleGift

    Soul mates I do believe in and when that moment happens it is one intense sensation. I loved this, and read it out loud so my ears could cherish every sound of every word you penned. You are a wonderful writer Fay. Saved so I can treat myself again

  • orchidee

    A fine write Fay. But, aww, why no one offer me the hand of friendship when I sing? They throw rotten eggs at me instead! lol.

    Hi Fay, In the face of what's left of storm Gareth I have been planting a cherry laurel hedge today 20 in all and here I am having a brew and a good read of a very good poem. I have given each little bush a name - number six is called Fay - hope you don't mind. Super as ever. Joe

    • Fay Slimm

      Ah - - - I am honored Joe - - not many have had a cherry-laurel named after them and thank you - -
      - - who wants names to up in bright lights when hedges last longer and cherries are sweet --- so pleased you are enjoying the brew and the read.

      Another good one Fay, that love that first stirs gets stronger as the souls become one in love.
