Maria Sol Deforrest

Where are you my dear friend
I have searched hi and low
These eyebrows have grown weary
They miss you more than you can know

And I miss you too
A fact I shall never deny
And I feel guilty everyday
For allowing our friendship to die

Over the years I have wondered
If I'd ever see you again
And if I did, what would I say
How would I begin

Would I start with an apology
Or tell you I miss you so
Would I tell you how much you meant to me
And hope that you've always known

It's always hard when friends lose contact
Especially when they were close like you and I
And I hope that you never feel
Like I wanted to say goodbye

We were young, and at that age
I don't think we realize how vital true friends are
Nor do we understand
That finding a true friend is hard

Some may argue that in a lifetime
Your lucky to find one
Others say no more than five
By the time your life is done

Either way I found you
Early on in my life
But I let you go
I'll regret it for all time

If you read this, please respond
Better late than never
I'll be waiting
Hoping we can restore our friendship together

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I had a friend in high school who graduated a year before me. When she graduated we spoke a few times but got wrapped into our own worlds. by the time I realized how much I missed her, it was too late. I had no way of contacting her. She inspired this poem.

    Lovely poem. I was also a close friend of Marisol's, and I reached out to her mother in an attempt to rekindle our friendship. I do not know what has happened. Her mother told me she would try her hardest to contact her for me. I found an online obituary dating back to 2005, I am hoping it is not hers. I am sad and confused... I would like to get in touch with her.

    Marisol is so privileged to have as a true friend as you are. I do continue to hope that you will find each other again. And I continue to hope that she will return to her family. I miss her, my only niece.
