A poem for a new friend at Triond. As I read one of her articles, something in me stirred to pen this for her to remember her best friend. A picture of the poem has also been submitted to the media section.

This poem is dedicated to LJ Spain in response to her article “I had a best friend“. The article is a moving account of her close friendship with a fellow church-goer. Something in me just stirred to want to pen this down. Do read her emotionally powerful article for yourself. 

I had a best friend

- dedicated to LJ Spain -

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

I just lost my best friend today

Each turns the other cheek and walked her way

Not turning back to look behind

If the other party would just change her mind

o

We had been friends for ten years now

In church our friendship was to be found

Then she had to go to another place

not knowing the things that she would face

–o–

I had to bring her home to stay with me

We were glad again, happy as can be

Except for work, we’ll be with one another

When you see one, hey, there’s the other

–o–

Home affairs soon became my chore

I couldn’t stay long with her any more

Many nights with others, out she’ll go

with people that I did not even know.

–o–

Now she’s called to say goodbye

Inside of me, I wonder why?

A best friend comes and then she goes,

where to now? Only heaven knows.

–o–

So I prayed to God,” Be kind to me

and keep me strong, lovingly”

That some day soon again I’ll find

a best friend that I can call as mine.

    Sgkeat, that is so precious. I can not believe you took the time to write that beautiful poem. It is so touching. I cannot really express how much it means to me. God Bless you.

    very nice one here, new friend.
    I lost some so-called friends too, but luckily some good ones still stay. Friends come and go, very few will treasure friendship, glad that you do.
