BONDS OF FRIENDSHIP


POEM ABOUT REUNITING WITH CHILDHOOD FRIEND

This poem was written for a very special childhood friend that I reconnected with after many years. I was experiencing turmoil from a tragic personal situation, and she was suddenly reintroduced into my life. She is an amazing listener and friend, and I’ll love her always. Thank you.






BONDS OF FRIENDSHIP



From the day that I first knew you.
Your heart was pure and kind;
Your smile was sweet and innocent.
Your wit was well refined.

The sparkle in your eyes was keen,
Your friendship fast and real;
Soft words were your virtue,
And humor your appeal.

We grew as friends together,
We laughed and shared our dreams,
Along the way crush or two,
Went unrevealed, it seems.

As years rolled on, our paths were split,
Our roads went separate ways;
We each pursued our interests,
That occupied our days.

We soon forget our youthful bliss,
Of tender carefree years;
We don’t talk or keep in touch,
Throughout life’s pain and tears.

Then my darkest hour comes,
And tried me to my core;
To save my heart from ruin,
I closed and locked the door.

Then out of every nowhere,
With precise directed cue;
An old familiar smile,
Came slowly into view.

Although much time was gone,
And the die of fate long cast;
It was as if we hadn’t missed,
A second of the past.

You listened with attentive care,
And reassured my mind;
That loving hearts are still alive,
With purpose and design.

Deep inside I’ve looked way.
Emotions yet untold;
As time goes on, and bonds grow strong,
They will all unfold.

So thank you, friend, for taking time,
To demonstrate your love;
It’s yet another blessing that,
I’m underserving of.
