Long´lasting Friendship

Updated on November 8, 2012

It takes a Long Time To Grow an Old Friend

 Alone with my thoughts, not a bad place to be,

Though my thoughts turn to you and how happy we´d be,

When distance between us was not problematic.

                    A bad day

                    A sad day

                    For either of us

We could get together, talk it over --- no fuss.

 

Now times have changed and we both feel the pain

It´s not quite so easy to comfort or cry,

when typing a message, but Diane, we can try.......

Imagine our world without this technology,

Posting a letter would make things much harder,

Let´s be grateful for the ways we can now keep in touch

We can feel close together over the miles.,

Even if we do miss that special thing¨ US¨´

 

There´s no friend in my past as a child or an adult

to compare with the ¨Diane¨that is you.

Never have l known  one so loyal and true.

No-one on earth is quite like you.

Alone with my thoughts, yes my thoughts turn to you,

How you´d look at the stars as if they were new.,

You gaze in delight, like an innocent child...

Look up!! and enjoy the sky that you see

Alone with your thoughts.

Just like me.

 

27th April 2010. The day we refused to say goodbye.  Just. See you  soon.x

    Colin , that is such a kind thing to say , but if you knew Diane, you´d know why l see it the other way. She is priceless and we hate living thousands of miles apart. Thank you again for all your support.

    ...well anyone who gets the chance to be a friend with you is truly truly blessed - because friends like you come along but once (or twice) in a lifetime - and they are to be cherished!!!!
