Forever

We were just friends

It wasn’t meant to be

But somehow it happened

A love anomaly

Different from past loves

I knew your very soul

We shared so much

Our lives were just so full

The ease in which

You took my heart

It was quite painless

And a wonderful start

A start of something

We will always treasure

It’s you and I in love

A love to last forever

A to Z Challenge – Friends

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary badge

F is for Friends

As near as I can tell, it is an Edna Buchanan quote that says “Friends are the family we choose for ourselves.”  I have always believed this.  I value friendships very highly.  As I write this I have done so many rewrites because I can’t find a clear way to express how important they are to me.  I think the most important thing is to let them know how you feel about them… life happens and you won’t always get the chance to say it.

Family like

Riches beyond measure

I love completely

Everything to me

Never out of my mind

Deep in my heart

Something very special

Walk Gently Please

The traffic has not been heavy
It was lighter than I would have liked
But still a fair share
Have walked in and out of my life
The memories are mostly good
But the losses are hard
The footprints behind
Leave a permanent scar
And there are those in question
Whether they will stay or go
Who seem to be stomping
Both to and fro
It hurts me with the back and forth
Just make up your mind
Keep the traffic moving
Or you will get left behind

Fan The Flames

You used to treat me like your love
Now I feel more like a friend
You used to kiss me passionately each day
Now it’s a brush against the cheek
We used to spend hours exploring each other
Now we barely even touch
Tell me what happened
Where did the fire go
I want to taste you once again
And feel the heat rise between us
It is time to bring the passion back
It is time to fall in love again

Friends For… A While

We were a tight group of friends
Or so I thought
We all brought something
Different to the group
A gentle soul
A go getter
A wild child
And a quiet one
Yet somehow we all meshed
The problem was
There was only one
Who put forth effort
To keep the bonds strong
The nucleus of the group
The planner
And when she got sick
Things fell apart
No more gathering together
No more being there for each other
We became strangers
And the perfect friendships
Became just individuals lost and alone

Will You? (FOWC)

Will you continue to be my friend…
When I forget to call
When I miss your birthday
When I can’t come to dinner
Will you continue to be my friend…
When I have a panic attack at your house
When I cry over the phone
When I reach out in desperation
Will you continue to be my friend…
When I can’t leave my house anymore
When I anxiety makes me physically ill
When I stay in bed for weeks from depression
Will you continue to be my friend?
