Where We Came From

Let’s reminisce

About the days

When we were old enough

To know better

But young enough

Not to care.

When we spent

Our hard earned money

On temporary satisfaction

Gone as soon

As they’d been obtained.

Liquid courage

To get us through

The days to come-

And the only things

We have to show

For our mistakes

Are the friendships

That made us stronger

And the lessons

We’ll never forget.

 

Teardrop

teardrop

I’ll shed a tear for you

Made from love

And the fondest memories

Of holding you in my arms

And stroking your soft hair absentmindedly.

You were always there for me

To lift up my spirits

When they were down

And I have never

Had a better friend than you.

You were a free spirit

Roaming the wilderness,

but you came back to society

To spend your life with me.

Without you,

I know that I will never be the same

So I will shed a tear for you

Even though you won’t be here to catch it.

It will hold

All our love

And memories.

It started on paper because I wanted to hold the shape of it. I wrote it for a friend that’s having a really hard time right now because she has to say goodbye to her lifelong friend, a cat named Mr. Boggles. I understand the pain that she’s going through, and we’re very close friends- almost like sisters, so it’s been rather emotional for me as well. Please feel free to leave any words of wisdom that may help a friend heal the wounds during this difficult time. I’d love to hear your stories as well whether they’re happy memories of an old friend of yours or stories that show your empathy for the situation. Thank you, all of you, for being you!

Young Love

A girl

That dreamed of men

Strong enough to support her

Fell in love with a boy

That needed to be uplifted

To feel loved.

 

A boy

Who never wanted to grow up

Or stop having fun

Fell in love with a girl

Who grew up much too fast

And never looked back at her youth.

 

A girl and a boy

Met and fell in love

And, together,

They were everything

They ever needed.
