Although you are a friend of mine
and letters we exchange,
I wouldn’t know you on the street,
and doesn’t that seem strange?
You hold a place within my life,
unusual and unique;
We share ideals and special dreams,
and still, we do not speak.
I picture what I think you are,
perhaps you picture me.
An intriguing game for both of us
for someone we can’t see.
So for this friendship we possess,
we owe this mail a debt,
Perhaps the charm lies in the fact
that we have never met.
Betrayal by Dan McDonald
by Dan McDonald
An echo fades into the night,
an eerie mournful sound.
A shooting star disappears from sight,
and I crumble to the ground.
There is no life within this garden;
my sobs are the only sound.
I have poisoned the honeyed fountain
where your love could be found.
Dazed, I stare at the stars above,
my grieving howls fill the night!
Unintended betrayal of love
has hidden you from my sight.
I remember how it used to be
when we shared our fears and delights.
You are a treasured friend to me.
How can I make things right?
Feeling afraid, cold and lonely,
I long to tell you how I feel,
but you don�t want to hear me.
The pain for you is much too real.
Should I back away and build a wall
and block away how I feel?
Or, should I give you a call?
We both need some time to heal.
An echo fades into the night
as our friendship disappears.
How do I know what is right?
How can I ease my fears?
If I do call you again,
would the old wounds reappear?
I can�t stand to cause you pain.

My Friend by Sammy Lane Sharp
by Sammy Lane Sharp
We all need someone
To talk to in our life,
A friend to whom we run
In times of stress or strife
A friend who’s always there
Throughout the years,
A friend we know will care
And take away our fears.
A friend who’s always near,
Waiting for our call,
To wipe away our tears,
And lift us when we fall.
A loving friend indeed,
On whom we can depend
To fulfill our every need
Thank you, precious friend
Apology by Tina K
by Tina K
How do I tell you I’m sorry –
With a gesture, a look, a touch?
How is it I never realized
I hurt you so very much?
I do not ask forgiveness,
A comfort I’ll never deserve.
I merely want to let you know,
But I cannot find the nerve.
To finally confront you, face-to-face,
To look you in the eye,
To face your wrath, your apathy –
Too terrified to try.
You called me selfish, I turned away,
I festered and I fled;
Cutting and wounding and lashing out,
Just to see if you bled.
Betraying and deceiving you,
I surely had no right
To snatch away such a precious gem;
A dark thief in the night.
Four years and forever passed
To bring us to this day,
When I present these simple words
I never thought to say.
The time has come, it’s long past due,
To put aside my fear;
Would this confession torture you,
Or have you longed to hear?
To hear those two forbidden words,
To vanquish all the pain,
To understand my dearest wish:
To know you once again.
The years aged me remarkably,
Though they have not made me wise;
I do know I erred irrevocably –
For that I apologize.
Only You by Dawn Nissen
by Dawn Nissen
With you, it’s all about
always knowing exactly what to say,
but never actually having to say it.
When no one seems to be listening,
When I hurt but don’t show it,
When I turn away to hide my tears,
When I feel like I can’t get through to anyone,
Your eyes glow just for me,
and I know you’re proud.
You flash your magical, healing smile my way,
and I know everything will be all right.
You know everything there is to know about me.
You know what worries me,
what keeps me up at night,
and what shames me so badly
that I can’t share it with anyone.
Most importantly, though,
none of those things bother you.
You’ve restored my faith in people
and proved that there is a thing
called true friendship.
A Simple Thank by warmhrt
A Simple Thank-You My Friend
Into the dim lit, bare walls of my world,
You entered, bringing light and life to me,
The vivid colors, painted with a swirl
Of wit and charm, of personality,
With tender care, you added comfort, warmth,
And images that line the now bright walls.
I look upon them fondly, bringing forth
A thankfulness that you walk in these halls
With me; our friendship has become a part
Of my world now; it has its special place,
Within my being, life, and in my heart,
Your name hangs right beside your smiling face.
Rememb’ring just how drab these walls had been,
I have to thank you for the light, my friend.
Losing A Piece Of My Soul
Losing A Piece Of My Soul
by Jasmine Johnston
I came to you the hour I was in pain
Looking for answers, I cried to you in vain.
I shared the many skeletons hiding in my heart,
I knew then you’d be my friend,
I knew it from the start.
Troubles ran like rivers, flowing through my life,
You picked the pieces up and help me through my strife.
When home wasn’t home to me no more,
You opened up your heart, and opened up the door.
We cried into night until the early morn.
We solaced each other’s pain and shared our many thorns.
As time flew, the air grew thick,
I saw our friendship fading, and my heart grew sick.
The day had arrived,
When it was time to say goodbye.
Now I sit alone,
reminiscing the past I’d blown.
