Friends

A Poem by emipoemi

Whene’er in solitude I often fall

Into remembrance of the times gone by:

From new beginnings, lively thrills, to all

The friends I chanced to gather on the fly.

Know, friends, I still remember each of thee,

And all the times we shared delightfully.

Though that’s now past, I hope ye all can see

How cherished still our friendships are to me.

Long have I but with memories now spent  

As silence grows and gently pains my heart.

For cunning Time with wicked Fate had rent

The very bonds which made us whole apart.

Yet memories no woe could fully heal,

For reminiscing never makes things real.

"Yet memories no woe could fully heal,
For reminiscing never makes things real."-very true lines. No matter how much we think or reminisce about the past, it's never gonna return. Better we live in the moment and enjoy our life as it unfolds. It was real sweet and relatable poem. Love the rhyme scheme. Very well written!

This poem explains true friendship beautifully. :) It's as if Shakespeare himself wrote this, mate. You can almost taste the emotions. :D

lol Which is funny because I haven't picked up a Shakespeare book in ages.
We have great memories with our friends, as they help us through tough times as well as our families
We go so many places with them to hang out and cherish all of it!
Such an amazing poem Emi!
Well done, keep it up!
