Lost Friend


It is sad to see the our friendship end
Like a bottle of ink without pen
Like words for a poem to be repeating
But no paper to keep them flowing

We once brought smiles to our faces
Now only frowns take their places
But yet we are still polite to each other
None brave enough to admit we already left the other

So we smile and greet
Like the sun and the ocean meet
But then pass straight
Not caring the others fate

Our friendship was great while it lasted
Evil Time made sure it was tested
Though we hold to the joys of the past
The birds will no longer sing when we pass

It was great my little friend
But if I don't call, don't think it the end
For I am just going with the flow we set
And one day that flow will be met

And our true friendship will be but a memory
And I hope they bring smiles when you see me
Cause we have laughed and play like true friends do
But when cold times came our bright sky were no longer blue

And though we fade with time
Please think it not a crime
For we must all move on
And new friendships must be form

So this is goodbye, so long, fair well
Remember this, a place in my heart you will always dwell

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
