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.

we will only have a few, That we keep as memories, close to our heart. you speak out my mind. we should cherish friendship more than gold. for it is something so valuable to us but so hard to hold.
An insightful and heartfelt composition. Beautiful poem nicely put together. Thanks for sharing and do remain enriched.
It’s good to have friends and sometimes good to say goodbye, but then nice to say hello again.
Lovely poem. It has the power to go deep into us to help us think of and remember our true friends
A very good and touchy poem. Every word says the true feels. Indeed separation from such friend is a great loss.

Dreams & Plans

When you want, something new in your life,
You must be open, to change,
You can't' just rely on others,
To follow, and rearrange.

Look Past The Stars

Many times, when we are lost,
We look up, to stare at the sky,
All we can see, are the clouds, passing by,
Never giving a thought of, other planets, up so high.

Always Listen

Always Listen

We create our own ambitions,
Convincing ourselves, what we would like to achieve,


I made it to my 60's still doing ok,
Changing identity, another time, along the way.
Who you are, is what you actually do every day,
The natural habits, you automatically sway to,

Why Are You Here?

How long could you keep others interested,
Discussing, hobbies, personal things you do,
Not those once a year, experiences,
The things you create, build, work on,
