A Poem For A True Friend, My Friend

Time does pass us by so very fast,
Only a moment’s pause, dawn is dusk,
But the moments we had will surely last,
Till the day these bones are dust.

The stars above light the night sky,
Cheering the moon, joyful as can be,
I promise you, our friendship is no lie,
You are my true friend, a part of me.

Though these words can hardly describe,
How strong the bond of you and I,
Never shall I bow down to fate and chance,
That will change my heart for you.

So long as I can breathe the air around me,
I will cherish you, my friend, for eternity…

    A sweet and loving poem! I loved the first stanza especially:

    Time does pass us by so very fast,
    Only a moment’s pause, dawn is dusk,
    But the moments we had will surely last,
    Till the day these bones are dust.

    It tells of the timelessness of time, yet of how fast it passes. Timelessness especially through 'Till the day these bones are dust' Shows a long while, a paraphrase of perhaps, eternity for all it might be. Nice work. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
