Friends That Touch Our Heart
Poem By Tom Maxwell
We use to be close, always together,
Shared good times, and helped each other, through bad weather.
There were few days, you would see us apart,
We had a friendship that connected, right from the start.
We could feel each others emotions, as if we shared the same mind,
and we would guide each other through lonely times.
Our last time together, was just a normal day,
Then for reasons unknown, our friendship just drifted away.
Over the years we cross paths, and it's just like the old days,
Then we part again, and journey on our separate ways.
We all have friends we hold close in our minds,
When we think of them, feelings of peace,
and happiness, come every time.
During this life, we will all have friendships,
That will drift apart, we will only have a few,
That we keep as memories, close to our heart.
