LOVER AND FRIEND

LOVER AND FRIEND Relationships are precious, like lover and friend Cherished much longer – built on trusting love and care Hence, losing one: melancholy – a tragic end Why have to lose one? Is life really that unfair? We are best friends, till death us part is what we swear Horizons shift from dark to blue on sprawling sand Through thick and thin, the solid bond will halt despair Relationships are precious, like lover and friend Stars and moon converge setting a happy trend Our dreams and goals pave one everlasting affair To each other's side we stand firmly to defend Cherished much longer – built on trusting love and care When eyes behold not just a friend but even more The carefree feelings change and deep emotions blend Will it be worth the risk that surely is in store? Hence, losing one: melancholy – a tragic end The battle rages like wild tempest right inside The urges unrestrained are there to give, to share Like burning lava hot to handle or to hide Why have to lose one? Is life really that unfair? The jewels’ sparkle has to last and never fade A lasting sacrifice is one that leads the heart To rise above the pains from which true love is made Lover and friend must aim to play a lasting part Relationships are precious. _____________________________________________ Your Best Poem #2 - Poetry Contest Sponsor: Shadow Hamilton ~~~3rd Place~~~ Relationships - Poetry Contest Sponsor: Regina Riddle ~~~2nd Place~~~ PAUL CALLUS and OLIVE ELOISA GUILLERMO 5:14 pm, April 14, 2014

Dear Olive and Paul, There is so much truth to your words here. Relationships ARE precious and sometimes we feel betrayed by friends and become reluctant to get close to anyone again. I had a lover who said he was my friend...but he betrayed me in the end. This poem touched me deeply. A wonderful co-write! Congrats on your success in the contest. There were many wonderful submissions and yours carries one of the best messages. Love and blessings, carolyn
