Friends Through Ages

Friends Through Ages

A Poem by Jester


In the beginning,

There were four,

Best friends forever,

They intoned,

Then one of their numbers left,

And she was only one.  


In her new home,

She was one,

But then she met another,

And they were two.


Soon one of the two left,

And she was one again,

But one would not last long.


The one was accepted by many,

And together they were six,

And they enjoyed much,

As they lived their lives together.


Soon two of them left,

And there were four,

They missed their friend,

But soon added more.


Three more were given,

And the seven enjoyed the years,

Spending life laughing,


And loving life.


In the coming years,

Two left,

Leaving behind five once again,

And they friends began to mature.


One was renounced,

And the four feared her,

And the things that she had done,

For in those years they knew nothing of drugs,

Of sex.


One more was added,

Arriving away from friends she knew,

Became part of a different group,

And they accepted and loved her.


The next year one drifted away,

But one of the two who had left so long ago,

Finally returned,

And she was greeted with open arms,

And joyful memories.


And so it was,

That the little girl who had left her friends,

So many years ago,

Grew into a woman,

Surrounded by friends she loved like family.


A sister that she now feared was leaving,

A sister that she laughed with,

A brother that she trusted with all her secrets,

And a lover that she cared for with all her soul.


Through it all,

She regretted not a single thing,

And looks back on the memories with fondness,

Awaiting the day that those that left,

And were leaving,

Would come back to her,

And join her fractured little family.

This is so sweet. :3 I remember when I found that picture, I stared at it for a minute, and just started giggling. Then I had to wait patiently for people to get online to show it to.

So yeah, I enjoyed it. It was kind of confusing , but I think I get it. This island seems to like dragging people together. :P Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
