Thoughts between you and me.. always ya..

Best friends..making memories.....
Best friends..making memories..... | Source

Acquaintances are made everyday..but friendships are expected to stay..

Between you and me...there’s a feeling your see...

That comes not so naturally...

It has to do with perception I feel..

between grown-up and parents especially..

I love the way you laugh at my jokes...

And the gleam in your eye when I speak..

I love the fact you never make fun of the things I find are bleak..

You’re always there to cheer me up ..when no one else has time..

We’ve shared but few , and that’s just fine...

I glad that we are friends..

You’ve made me feel like someone cares..and I hope I’ve done the same..

Others make fun of our relationship..cause they just can’t comprehend..

That life can be overwhelming to some..and others just a game..

But if this works for you and me why can’t they understand ?

I hope that we will remain as friends, but if we don’t you see..

Just knowing you now has helped me grow to become just who I am...

Our parents don’t like or understand what it means for us to be friends..

They say we are too young for this, but what have we done so wrong ?

But be the best of friends we can , and help each other grow strong....

The only problem that I can see that they remember way back then...

When they themselves were only ten....

PS...this story was based on " childhood friends" outside the family.....

Hi, kj....Childhood friendships are sometimes the ones that last a lifetime, depending on their strength. I've maintained such a friendship with one person from my youth for all these decades. Even though we don't see each other regularly, when we do get together the years just fall away, and we can talk about anything.

Perhaps some parents don't understand the close friendships of children not because they DO recall how they felt at age 10, but because they DON'T! Or, perhaps they are unable to recognize their children's need for close friendships, expecting them to choose someone inside the family as a confidante. Sometimes a close sibling can play that role, but not always. A best friend can seem more like family than actual blood relatives.

Insightful poem, kj....Voted Up++

JayeWisdom..Thank you for your comments and I'm glad you understood my write..

Sometimes when children and even adults share with a friend, it's because there is no one else that seems to it parental/spouse's a great feeling to know there is a soundingboard to relate to..many people cannot relate to these type of friendships..I for one believe in childhood friendships that grow and continue years later...thanks for the vote-up..have a wonderful day...

I have always wished I had stayed in contact with more of my good childhood friends. Having moved around quite a bit, the early years are more of a blur. I do have very distinctive feelings of their importance in my life. I do also have ine very good friend. We have known each other since I was 14 (my last move and subsequent school change as a child) We live in different states but can get together and pick up where we left off! Thanks for this great hub! BTW, a little funny thing that happened last week. I was visiting my mom for a week and got together with the bestie. I got in trouble for staying out too late! lol Some things never change! Up and beautiful!

Great writing here KJ Force and no better words were spoken. When we have a great friend. such as your poem speaks of. they don't have to be around all the time and when we are together again it is like we never were apart.

KJ - This just warmed my hardened heart. You are so creative - able to go from a mysterious tale such as Fred and switch gears with a beautiful and emotional poem about childhood friendship. It seems the friendships everyone thinks are not the best match end up being those that last a lifetime.

Voting up and sharing. Have a wonderful Halloween my friend.

This was inspired by a conversation between my G-son ( age 10 ) and I the other day, he was sharing...after which he said " could you write a poem about that Nann ? " I assured him I would..he came up with the title..thank you for the vote-up and share..
