GOODBYE TO A FRIEND I had a friend but, I had to let her go We are both upset and the tears did flow I had a friend but, I had to say goodbye No-one can say I didn’t try We were friends off and on for ten years We shared the laughter and the tears We both have Bipolar and it came between us Earth to earth and dust to dust She has the highs and I have the lows It’s nobody’s fault, that we both know I will miss her and she will miss me But our friendship can no longer be I had a friend but, I had to say goodbye That’s all I can say before it makes me cry.

Hello Sandra Doolan, Lovely to meet you to. Yes ending a friendship is difficult you did the right thing. Yes writing a poem is cathartic and thearapeutic. I like Free Verse, Verse. Haiku. Tank,.and more. I have never done a limerick. I find them hard to do. I also do Acrostic and more. Enjoy y0ur day my friend.

G'day Darlene Lovely to meet you too. Ending the friendship was difficult but writing the poem was cathartic and thearapeutic. I love poetry :) I am mainly a rhymer but I occasionally write an Acrostic poem and I love Limericks because they are fun. I appreciate your comment, thank you. Take care. Warm Regards Sandra
