Different Friends Know a Different Me

Different friends know a different me.
For I am not the same with Margaret as I am with Lee.
I cannot be the same, and neither can they.
We have history, each making our story in a different way.

If you have a forever friend, you know what I mean.
You can pick up the phone and twenty years of silence goes away.
Your reactions, shared stories, memories, and laughter together is unique.
A different relationship with each friend.

Each friendship is sacred, living on her own planet.
Resting where others cannot go, a place you cannot begin to explain.
A planet reserved for two, held together by the 
uniqueness you find in each other.

When I get my friends together we have a pleasant time,
But our hidden stories are not on the table. Our unique relationships 
Are not touched on. Our hidden planet lives are safe.  
Unique only to me and one other.
Whether it be me and Susan or me and Elise, uniquely ours.

A story all of our own. That cannot be explained.
A planet where no one else is invited.
Uniquely our own.
Different friends, different me.
Different me with different friends.

This is life explained perfectly to me. We invite different people to look through different windows into our souls. And maybe once in a lifetime someone to know our entirety.

You are correct, Alunamda. We share what parts we need to share, but usually not all, rarely most parts.

It is so true; I relish the individual relationships I have with many.

Thank you Anthony. It is something I think of sometimes and it still amazes me with its truth.

I am always thinking "what have I not said?" I am running out of ideas all the time.

This is so true: "Each friendship is sacred, living on her own planet. Resting where others cannot go, a place you cannot begin to explain." A universe in friendly universes.

It truly is, and it does not have to be understood by anyone else, for it never could be. I have the thought when we get to heaven we recognize each other immediately by our feelings we have toward each other.

Sounds very interesting to me Caren. I don't really like the same old, same old. Me, I don't want friend, never have. most of the everyday people are quite boring, as you can see by a lot of stuff on Poetry sites. I think you could make one smile in no time, now that is what I like. Nice poem, my friend....peter

Thank you Peter. I appreciate your stop by. My husband had two great friends. Unfortunately, they have both passed in the past two years which makes it hard for him. I have oodles of friends, but he is not interested in joining us - all women.
