Friends!


Do they hear footsteps fast?
How I wonder they better forecast
Spring or Winter, how they come to know
before they come and before they go?

How I wonder they could foresee fate?
In coming and going I never see them late!
Friends! I do fear, both of them are true!
They come and go or just come to go.

    Good write, Palas! I added you to my friends list, gave you a 10 on this one.I like simplicity in writing and think you would find mine interesting. I write to Make People FEEL and THINK about not only the words, but, the message that they reveal. Try Kann abels restuarant, The hustler or whatever you like. Captain Paranoid has a hidden message that is right out front and most miss it. it was one of the more difficult and complex poems I wrote., See if you can tell me why? Thanx (Report) Reply

    I love the music of this poignant, wistful piece. True friends, I believe are parted
    only by death. And then they live on in the landscapes of the mind. Your friendship
    has enriched my life. Thank you for your warm birthday wishes.

    Always your friend at poemhunter,

    Friends come and go. Just like lovers do. But can we do without them?
    Interesting piece there. (Report) Reply

    vey interesting perspective, dealt deftly. truth is friends come and go, like life's ebb and flow. it makes us sad, sometimes the vaccuum is never filled. however, true friends are soul mates, they do hear, see and feel even when you are silent.

    Palas this a very intense poem, you have said and left unsaid so much....10
