Forever

I miss the friend that you once were to me 
Those times that we’d hang out together
Dreaming about life … laughing so easily 
I thought that we would be friends forever 

Sometimes it’s hard to see things clearly 
When faced with life’s harsh realities

I felt you slowly pulling away from me 
When we ran into some stormy weather
I let you go … now I miss you desperately 
The memories will be with me forever

    It is sad when friends separate. You make the reader feel your sorrow and heartbreak. Emotional and sad. nice job

    I think we all have these moments. That friend we thought would be there forever. Then the circle of life takes us in another direction. Lovely poem

    Yes, Thomas, I'm trying to learn how to move on... I am not one to walk away easily from people, but sometimes there's nothing else we can do. Thank you for coming by.

    Becca, this poem really resonated with me. My best friend of 20 years and I are experiencing this same kind of problem. This is wonderful piece about friendship. Good job and kudos!

    Thank you AP.. I'm sorry to hear about your friendship and I hope that you can get it back, especially being a 20 year friendship! Hugs

    The bad times do weed out the true friends from the fickle ones....then sometimes they go away to find their bearings and come back fresh and true, my wish is that this is true. Terrific write and great new form, he should call it PJ rhyme....lol

    Cecilia, you are so right, about weeding out, and also about some coming back. Thank you for this encouraging comment.

    Becca, I tend to feel that once we utter our hopes and dreams we give them wings, in the end if it is meant to be just embraced the beautiful memories. Ps: this is a gem :)

    We don't know what we have till it's gone ... or maybe we realize that what we thought we had wasn't there all along. Thanks Richard.

    Beautifully expressed. Here's hoping their ears & eyes are open. The storms are always the determining factor on a whether tomorrow's sunrise will return as strong as it was before.

    Thank you, Drake. Your comment is poetic. I don't know how open his eyes and ears are. Maybe some delicious lasagna would get his attention? lol
