Spring Girls

Spring Girls

A Poem by MsJewel
"

some friendships are forever

"

 

~~~

We were spring girls

preferring crystal blue skies and a warm breeze

ruffling light cotton dresses

in our bright daisy dreams

 

Dreams that have never really dimmed

and still echo giggles of

“he loves me, he loves me not”

 

Now shared on long distance phone lines

and holiday cards…

and in dog eared pictures

tucked neatly in a photo album

titled

“Best Friends Forever”

 

And today,

as I watch the leaves fall like rain

and the clouds wrap around me,

I will shrug off their gray November coat

reminding myself

there will be no tears today

 

No...not today

 

Only bright skies and butterflies

and sweet smiling daisies

spread around to make the spring

 

and perhaps a game or two of he loves me, he loves me not

to skip and float

on the sweetness of the breeze

 

Almost as sweet as the memories etched upon my heart…

 

Reminding me

when love is strong

it never really fades

but continues to bloom

across the miles and over the years

 

And yes…while these blue eyes may be a bit misty

there won’t be any tears today

 

only daisies

 

and the remembered smiles

of three spring girls

~~~

This one gives me goosebumps, Julie. I think you have posted it before. It is worth reading over and over again. The innocence of youthful friendships can last a lifetime and those who share your history are always close....even if geographically far away. Bittersweet loveliness and a tad of melancholy in this, but so very beautiful. Lydi**

not many 'friends' stay that way forever, and those that do, are TRUE friends indeed

these are the friendships we treasure..when it now has to be emails and phone calls and seldom visits...but it still sustains the miles...i have some like that...we haven't seen each other in so long..but we are just as strong.
