This poem was borrowed from my friend Christopher Tompkins :-) Chris is the portrait of a true friend. He has shown me that a friend allows us to be ourselves, and supports us no matter what. I honestly believe Chris would give his life for anyone. "The motto of chivalry is also the motto of wisdom; to serve all, but love only one"....Honore De Balzac. This quote describes Chris so well. He is an Airborne Infantryman....a paratrooper :-) Chris is originally from Springfield, MO, and is currently serving in the U.S. Army at Ft. Bragg, NC. He is currently stationed in Korea. On a personal note, Chris....In light of all the recent tragedy in New York, and the threat to our homeland, I know that you and your friends' practiced skills are now being tested....and I know those guns will work this time :-) America will be victorious....thanks to soldiers like you. I have every confidence in you and your comrades' expertise....I am very proud of you. I hope that there is a quick end to what seems an impossible that your soul is once again free to dance :-) I will always cherish your friendship, and will continue to pray for your safety daily. I also need to say....I'm sorry. Be careful, Chris. I will always love you....your friend, Rach :-) Welcome Home, Chris!!! October 2002 :-)

Recently I ran across this story that reminds me of Chris.
I know one day he'll definitely pass The Final Inspection :-)

I love the way we've been from the start,
The way your love melts my heart,
That you've been as caring as can be,
You've been the sweetest person to me.

I love the way we have so much in common,
Maybe because for me you're the right person.
I love the way that nobody sees me like you do,
The way you give me love so true.

I love the way we talk on the phone even for a while,
The way your  voice makes me smile.
I love the way we share precious memories,
That forever my heart will cherish.

I love the way you give me your sweet embrace,
The way I feel the warmth of your breath on my face,
The way I feel the softness of your lips when we kiss,
So close we are, I wish we'll forever be like this.

I love the way you look into my eyes,
The way we make each other realize,
That we should keep going strong,
Even though they think this is wrong.

I love the way we dream together,
And the way we promised each other,
No matter how much we would suffer,
It'll be us, it'll be forever.
