A Friend From The Past

A Friend From The Past

A Poem by Cynthia Man

Bye bye... my friend, but then... why?


The same face, the same features

But then there's no warmth in your gaze,

Or am I wrong,  we’re only strangers

Who keep passing each other by?


It’s your heart I don’t feel familiar with

Where’s the friend I used to know?

Why have you changed so much?

Come back to me, the soul mate of mine


I don’t need fame and money of yours,

Only want your love and comforting words

And the friendship between,

That’s what I treasure within


This familiarity, yet the huge distance,

So… who are you?

So… Where are you?

My best friend in the past?


Where is the person I used to know?

Why can’t I feel it in the brand new you

Did you lock yourself within?

Will you please come back as my friend?


Or did you choose to erase me

From your book of history,

By cutting the bond between us?

Why did you draw such distance from me?

Author's Note

Cynthia Man
A Goodbye to my best friend..... She changes... I no longer know her, and there's no turning back.... And it makes me so sad and at the same time meeting some kind of writers block....

Anyways, I'll try to write something longer after this one... :)

I guess, we all went a several times in our lives, through the lost of a real good friend, your words describe it so well here, how painful that can be, and remember one thing, it's a loss, but all has it's reasons, maybe this person, wasn't good enough for you dear, or not good enough for him/herself to live without you. Nice expressions here.

Always welcome sweetie
Hard when we lose good friends. Difficult to understand why. Sometime we must remain friendly. Good friends do return. I like the questions asked in the poem. A sad ending to a excellent poem.
