DAY MY ETERNAL FRIEND

Day, my lifelong, friend Thousands of times have we said good morning to each other and As many times have we said goodnight, You have waken me up with the caresses of sun’s rays and put me To sleep with the lullabies of sunset’s myriad hues Many a time you were calm as a harbor's waters and others you were Turbulent as the stormy sea but I loved you the same, so we Inseparable have remained. How many times have I waited for your coming you will never know Neither will you know how much I have prayed to see you faster go when so Unkind you were to me You, however, kept your pace unchanged, obeying only the will of mighty time. All these years you have brought to me: Joys and sorrows, Laughter and tears, Successes and failures Health and sickness Life and death, You were the best of my friends and the worst of my enemies but United, side by side we stood. How could it be otherwise when we Both wished our destiny to fulfill? Now, my eternal friend, the circle of my life is almost complete The days for me are numbered How many more times are we going to salute each other is unknown to all but to God So Before we say our final goodnight, let me thank you for every sunrise and every sunset, For all the sunshine and all the storms you have brought to my life For Without them an empty vessel, without any experiences would I have been, Useless to everybody and worthless to myself Thus When tomorrow you, my wise friend, come and unable you will be, me to awake, Be not disturbed Since Another dawn, brighter than yours, will have taken me into its arms to console me With her everlastingly divine love! © Demetrios Trifiatis 03 September 2015

I felt all of this fine poem my friend. Time is most often our enemy but what would we do if we were to live forever in the current state of darkness, weakness, vice and lust we so often indulge in now? Adding this gem to my fav list and thanks! A7

Thank you, Richard! My older poems where long: two, three, four pages but as I advance in years, I would rather stick to the gist of what I wish to say! Her at soup, I think, Reincarnation, Life in Eternity, My age and I, We Are Brothers, Know Thyself are some of my longer poems.

Demetrios wow. This touched my heart. So ingenious of a thought. What a symbiotic relationship you have with each day. Creating experiences in your life through God given time. Exceptionally written. This one is above seven. I know seven is the highest rating. You deserve a 10+.
