Friends Forever

children

Little girl
Blond hair blue eyes
Living the happiest
Days of her life

For right beside
Is her very best friend
A young boy
Of almost ten

Dangling their feet
At the end of the pier
Just happy to know
The other is near

Spending each day
Climbing trees
Too much fun
To notice scrapped knees

Riding bikes
All over town
Smiling and happy
Never sharing a frown

Now side by side
Near the river’s edge
Each silently makes
A forever pledge

For he’s her hero
And she’s his muse
Both something to the other
Neither wants to lose

Friends forever
Never to part
Lucky to have each other
From the very start

I wrote this poem years ago and it always reminds me of my best friend C, and what I imagine it would have been like to grow-up with him.  So wherever you are today C, and whatever you’re doing, I hope you have the best birthday ever.  Love and miss you… ~M xoxo
