Everything

A friend talks about everything and anything; pure joy.
A lover takes you places you never thought you'd go.
And a friend and lover gives this joy and love and is there...forever.

I wrote this for Trifextra Week 34 Writing Challenge where we are supposed to write about something (or someone) that (who) does three things at the same time.

Your comments are appreciated.

    1. Yes, the last relationship is what we strive for and what I thought was "everything". Thank you.

    1. Don't know what happened there but this is what I said...

      Oh, to have both. That which dreams are made of...

      I'll order a #1 and #3, please. Well done, lumdog!

    2. Thank you Gina. I like your take on this. I was thinking that the third relationship was the ultimate, but having a friend who brings joy is valuable too.

    3. That's exactly what I meant in my first sentence (oh, to have both). To have friend and lover combined...perfect!

  7. Oh, so sweet, loving one's best friend. Well, my BFF is a gay man, so no dice there, but the man who caught my heart first played Beanie Baby toss with my bored daughter at a praise band rehearsal. I thought, "What a nice guy." Fourteen years later (and at daughter's REQUEST!), we got married. This is a wonder of a love story, no matter what kind of love it is... Amy

  11. To encompass both and become that third is the ultimate contentment. I love the way your mind works.

    1. Thank you Imelda. I think friendship and romance are critical. One without the other is nothing.

  14. Lol! I saw Gina's comment on my way down to make one. Great minds think alike. I was going to say, I'll take some of that to go. Love it!

  15. When you have all three, it's the Trifecta of Life. Nice!

  16. You talked about a friend and a lover and both making them seem like one person in 3 roles....great. At least that is what I presumed.

    1. I'm afraid I was a little obscure. A friend might not be there forever. The same with a lover. So, in my mind, the commitment to be a friend and lover forever was the third thing. Thanks for your comments Habiba. I always enjoy reading your work.

  17. I'm actually trying to comment on bunnies, but Blogger is having nothing doing. It appears to think you have your limit of remarks or something.

    I have to wonder what kind of gravy Mirna is serving him and if he'll ever realize that his biscuits are a little bit extra mealy.

  18. and I thought I was the romantic...it seems you are outshining me in that arena these days..
    I liked it, and yes, when you have a person in your life that is all those things, it is as if Heaven has made a place for you.

    nice work my friend.
