When We Were Young

Little hands and twirling hair.
Many years since we were there.
Wide-eyed innocents us four.
Standing right before life’s door.

We made a pact that we would be.
Together for eternity.
But different roads our paths did take.
Promises we did forsake.

Now our lives are almost done.
A million miles since we were young.
But every time that we all meet.
The memories flow back so sweet.

    I'm so glad to find someone else who works truly hard, as I do, to get the metre of their poem perfect. I know it is hard to do this and you probably, like me, have to go over it several times to get it like this, but it really is good. I love your subject too. Friends and family, even stretching back to childhood, are well worth keeping. A really good poem I would say.

    Hi Josie, Yes, I do go over my poems many times to get them just right. I can see where you must do that as well because your poem flowed so perfectly! Yes, family and childhood are always worth remembering. Thank you so much! :)
