Always A Friend On The Other End

Updated on November 23, 2011

It Has Been Awhile

Growing up in two different worlds but we can some how relate

Touched by a friendship that began way back in college

Both of our moms have the same birthday

Each has lost a parent and are the youngest in our family

A common bond that has grown and kept strong

Even though distance separates us and we hardly ever see each other any more

We never seem to forget to just say hi

When everyone else turns on their computers and text to their friends

We love to hear each others voice which is so familiar and nice

A laugh is something that Facebook can't bring to life

We do it more on holidays or after work or on vacation when one of us gives the other a call

Our lives have taken many changes

We have heard each other experience the best and worst of times

Through it all we have talked and listened being as understanding and helpful

Wanting nothing more than to see each other happy

We grow older and life still has many surprises ahead of us

I look forward to seeing us both doing well and making it through it all

I can't wait to the next time the phone rings and it is you on the other end

I know as always we will catch up and feel a sense of peace

That each of us is fine and we have brought back some old memories and added some new ones too

Then we usually end it when one has to go or the other one is falling asleep

One thing is for sure it will always be something special and never boring or dull

We end it with a last minute thought or two and good night talk soon

      People are forgetting the beautiful old art of talking to each other: they text, they email, etc. There is nothing like the sound of a friend's voice, or a loved ones. Good Hub.

      Ah the beauty of good friendship... It is definitely the fruit of life. When we have good people around us to share our moments with, and someone to listen to us and for us to listen to, to go through life with support, joy and laughter... Well written my friend... It touches my heart...

      Thanks. Whilst reading it I could also relate it to my own life and friendships over many years.

      I'll get at least a tiny bit of a few hours with my sister's family, who'll be arriving tonight in Texas. But, I'll be working through tomorrow and the whole rest of the weekend as well.

      I never mind working when it's writing or editing. When it's other stuff, on occasion, I admit I sometimes whine about it, lol!!

      I've got some wonderful peeps in my life very much like the one you've written of here, and ... wow ... aren't they just total treasures?

      I had a big smile splashed across my face while I read this!

      moiragallaga I agree the speed that we live our lives is faster than the year before.Wanting more instantly without having to wait.Is an amazing thing.Still a familiar sound of someones voice rings home.Thank you so much and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

      Friendship, one of the benefits of human interaction. Technology has facilitated the means by which we can keep in touch with our friends in this ever dynamic and highly mobile world we now live in. Though getting to talk with your closest friend over the phone beats an electronic message every time. Beautiful poem Dream On.
