The Ode to a Friendship

Updated on December 13, 2012

I met this kid, my real good friend.

The best of times, we always had,

All through high school, he taught me to be an intellectual, and not just this punk rock rebel.

This is for you,

The friend who taught me,

The friend who fought with me,

In the meanest and best of times,

It always just you and me.

We drank and we sang, dancing

Away the school day pain, music, always a steady riot in our soul,

Enhanced by the forests, in our bowls,

This is for us,

The best of friends,

Like a brother, till the end,

Through thick and thin,

It’s always just you and me.

Our futures burn bright, and hey now, we stay proud;

we never see the darkness of night,

We’ll raise our glasses and toast our lives,

grateful for good fortunes, and the always sunny skies.

      Thank you very much, this was an assignment I had to submit for college creative writing class and wanted to see how others would respond besides my teacher. Thank you for the response!

      A wonderful tribute to an enduring friendship, I quite enjoyed the flow of this peace and wished it had went on a little longer :)
