Friend - Poem by Marie Cris Ponsaran

Was it so long ago,
That you and I met
In a room where most
Ignore each other.

It was that moment
That our eyes crossed
And you smiled
And I smiled.

Yes, it wasn’t that long ago
That we bent our heads
To talk in secret
And laugh at our own childish pleasure.

It was that moment
That I knew I had a friend:
Someone I could laugh with,
And perhaps cry with.

Yes, it was our scattered lives
That drew us close
And opened our eyes to a reality
That we are not alone when we think we are.

It wasn’t so distant then.
That memory
Of you and I

And so perhaps,
It won’t be of much matter
If we would be separated once again
For I know I’ve a friend
In you.
