Sometimes you have to lose to win
You lose a lover but gain a friend
Oh, how lucky I have been
For love can be lost, but friendships
Need never end
So when in life when you least expect it
A friendship thought lost is resurrected
Out of the blue so unexpected
Just when you needed them most

    Would that it happened that way. All too often not, but yes should it, how nice it would be. Read mine - The Protagonist -

    You lose one, and gain another. There is pain, but there is happiness there to heal the wounded heart. This is beautiful, i see what you mean by friendship. Truly a great write, Bravo :) (Report) Reply

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
