Friendship: A Slice of Life Post

Hello everyone. I hope all is well with you. I’m back with another Slice of Life Post, and today I’m sharing a poem about friendship. I went to a Memorial Service for a friend of mine over the weekend. Her husband passed away and she wanted to celebrate his life, and his celebration brought a good portion of our old gang back together.

It was great seeing everyone even though it was under such sad circumstances. We met when we were teenagers and here we are in our fifties.  Boy time sure flies, doesn’t it?

Here’s the poem. I love the last line.

 

Ode To Friendships

They’re the few people who accept silence over conversation

A relationship like this denies silly promises and persuasion

You don’t feel the need to second guess thoughts or measure words

Their love comes in wholes, not halves, not thirds

They’re the ones that guide you through when fate takes a turn

Fights, small and large, end in forgiveness, never a burn

You forget about first impressions and the feelings they brought

You’re grateful for who they are and you forgive ’em for what they’re not

  1. Beautiful poem. I have been fortunate to still have friends from childhood. And though we don’t see each other often and sometimes, it’s connecting through FB. we pick up where we left off. Extending deep and heartfelt sympathy to your friend and her family at this time.

    It is very, very hard to lose a friend like the one you wrote about in this poem. Take good care Lisa.
