Poetry

Friend no longer

Friends once
now, no more;
hand-in-hand
now, alone;
shared laughs
now, few tears;
precious days
now, disappear

heart-broken
sometimes numb,
dreams unseen
plans undone

Some friendships
last forever;
others though,
soon fade away
Each person
will leave a mark
making sure
memories remain

    This is deeply eloquent. You’re right sometimes it doesn’t work out.. perhaps we are only meant to learn something from them and then move on.

      Thank you Sanaa! I do think there are some relationships in life we are meant to learn lessons from and continue on ahead. 🙂

    Yeah, some friendships dont last forever. I have lost a quite a few over the years. But am glad that our paths crossed and we had a good time while it lasted. Beautiful expression, Sanch!

    So many people come to mind when I think of this… that hurts more perhaps.

    I have lost way too many friends to lose sleep over it now; I remember the ones I have and why and keep going on from there.
    Beautifully expressed Sanch!

    Each person leaves a mark, indeed.

    Damn, this hurts more than it should.

    This is something that I have learnt the hard way, but it’s also a lesson I have learnt for good now. Not all people in our lives are meant to stay forever, and these things are not always in our control. But life still goes on. You have captured this very well through your words.

    This is beautiful. 🙂
    This is something I’ve learned with age and maturity. Some friendships have timelines or expiration dates and as sad as that can be, sometimes that is life, you know? There’s always something to be learned from them all.
