The Friend I loved Before

by Vernett
(Toronto, Canada)

Are you the friend I loved before?
The one I dreamed of and adore
Oh! How I miss those tender years
Cause now there’s nothing else but tears
Turning back the clock I know
Should be my greatest gift to show
But sadly that can never be
Because I’m no one else but me.

The moments we shared, the passion, the care
The sadness, the joy, devotion my dear
Distraction, obstruction never far away
The trials and tribulations they came to stay
Deep waters, rough seas, quick sand and precipice
We held our hands we navigated in peace
Our love for each other the guidance of our creator
Our strength our courage was our shield our protector

Are you the friend I loved before?
The beauty of love I know for sure
Was truly expressed in our joy and laughter
The wear and tear now really don’t matter
For I loved you then and I love you now
And again I am willing to make the vow
What else can I do right now my love
Shall I just leave it to our Lord above

Are you the friend I loved before?
The difference is we’ve grown much more
Your inner thoughts were always there
But my love for you, was always sincere
Your love for me now can you explain
Ignore the damage caused to my brain
The truth does hurt but I hurt no more
And it’s sad because for this, there is no cure

Are you the friend I loved before?
A love so blind, so deep not obscure
Oh how I miss your loving care
My love too true, intense, my dear
Turning back the clock I know
Should be my greatest gift to show
But sadly that can never be
Because I am no one else but me.

Beautiful Birthday Poem
by: Denise

This is a beautiful poem with a tone of sadness. My take on this poem is, it refers to a tense relationship where there seem to have been disagreements between the couple. I believe this poem reflects a couple who was madly in love but like in all relationships it took the turn for the worse. It certainly has a conciliatory tone.
Good stuff!
