A Thoughtful Place

A Thoughtful Place

A Poem by Penlady
"

I've heard the question begged if once lovers can they still be friends?

"

Who's to know

But lovers

If friendship

Could stand

Where love once dwelt

Felt what others couldn't have felt

Unless they too were lovers

There is a difference, you know

A vulnerability loosed

A beautiful freedom between,

Allowances given

Touches

Tastes

Feelings

Weaknesses shown

But then too, strengths

And isn't that what friendship means

To love in spite of, because of

In need of and the needy

Hunger we feed, another's

Satisfaction

As our own is given

Oh, yes, I think I would and could

Be a friend

To one I've been lover

The dearest kind whose

Precious secrets

Remain within two hearts

So loved

So befriended

In the end become one!

'.. isn't that what friendship means ~ To love in spite of, because of ~ In need of and the needy ~
Hunger we feed, another's ~ Satisfaction ~ As our own is given.. '

To write in this way you need have both heart and mind; need the two to see and feel the possibilities so many fail to appreciate. To have loved and mislaid or lost, Is sadness enough, but, to forget why you loved in the first place could be thought of as a sin. Perhaps.

I truly love and appreciate your gentle all-seeing words.

i do relate to this...i have several ex-girlfriends with whom i am still very close friends...and one ex-wife the same...sometimes exes make the best friends...they more sides of us than others might.
