Best Friends A Poem

Passed by the years

though we didn't speak

In my thoughts you stayed

with the news I was pained

I felt small and weak

As rain down a window, ran my tears


Alas, I have no fear

best friends again we shall be

when the maker calls for me

In the coming years.

First attempt at a poem

 This is my feeble attempt at poetry.  I hope you like it and if not then please let me know what I need to do to make it better.  I am still trying to figure out how to do poetry.

      Poetlorraine: I am around but as this is the ending of my deployment, the operation tempo has increased exponentially. I have been busy at work, on here I have also been working on improving my older hubs. Its harder than I thought.

      Jess: Thank you for your sentiments and I agree, he died about five years ago. When I heard about it even though we hadn't spoken for about 12 years I was still saddened.

      There's a fantastic book called "The Triggering Town", by a famous poet (blocking on his name at the moment). It's a beautiful resource for anyone interested in poetry. Check it out sometime.

      Years spent in school can not teach you to write a poem. The words will flow aross the paper when the feelings flow from your heart. This was beautiful. Carry on.

      I agree with those who say just write what you feel. This poem speaks powerfully. There is no mistaking your strong feelings and sadness about your friend's loss.

      I love its simplicity -- that's a huge part of its charm!

      Keep writing poetry. You are a natural. MM

      I think it was very good! It is poignant, sad and leaves you longing to be reunited for your loved ones. Poetry that makes you feel, is what poetry is all about! Come home safely!

      Nice poem! The best way to figure is to keep the thoughts flowing and they figure themselves, I believe. It has been years ago that I actually studied forms of poetry and I don't really hold or recall the rules. To me poems are personal and ones thoughts placed are the best! Look forward to more! :)
