Sonnet: A Lost Friendship - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

You were my friend then: now almost stranger!
Our friendship appeared once very glorious;
What happened meantime, gives me great anger;
Our friendship no longer remains serious.

Fool you were, to be misled by others,
Who drove a giant wedge ’midst our friendship;
Cut off is our friendship, which me bothers;
A nadir has come in our relationship.

What years of intimacy have been lost?
You’ve been foolish, very much on your part;
Our friendship today is just but a ghost;
Won’t your eyes see the true love in my heart?

Dear friend however, you can’t be my foe;
I hope that our friendship, blossoms once more!

    So so true of so many friendships so I know many can relate. One thing we must never do is listen to the words of others who might be of jealous mode. These people use others and talk against them in order to make themselves look good not caring abut the devastation of those who had a great friendship. I love your poem, it's true to life.....

    here! here! great poem, I know exactlly how you feel. what was once there, has gone from me, what was shown no longer seen. friendship it was friendship it seemed, but now that friendship is nothing more than a floaded dream, until that one day my friend comes back to me... anyhow keep up the good work, and if you have time check out some of mine.
