Friends Who Changed Our Life

Updated on January 17, 2019

The Words May Never Be Said Until It's Too Late

Someone who comes into your life unexpected

Through odd circumstances or chain of events

Nobody could ever predict or control

The once in a lifetime meeting

Develops in a few short years to something so much more

Even though different backgrounds and age differences

The relationship still seems to flourish

If it is early in the morning and we run into each other food shopping

A quick drive bye in passing

A Christmas wish and a Happy New Year

There will always be fond memories

Invited to a summer barbeque and a bonfire

Out to eat at a local hot spot

Better yet good old home cooking

That no money can buy

Only to find out years later

That once again things will change

Your moving to a new home

Starting a new beginning

Wishing you a world of love

We will always remember your beautiful home

As a huge home tucked off in the corner

Behind the trees and leading to miles and miles of wonderful woods

Your large windows that take the sun in from every direction

Most of all

As a loving couple

Mike and Gayle

That sold us our land

So we could have an incredible start

To build our own dream home

In this lovely place in Berwick, Maine

      Tim Truzy I am always surprised when someone reads one of my poems. Today there are so many things people can do every day. We should choose our time wisely so we can accomplish as much as possible and live the life of our dreams. When you visit one or more of my hubs I am so happy.Thank you for your generosity and passion for writing. I appreciate your friendship. Have a great day.

      Hello, Dream on,

      Reading your work I reflected on my long-time friend who I've known for nearly twenty years, who is currently teaching in China. It's as if we have passed each other throughout those years to encourage one another, to assist the other, with reaching the next station in life. I believe before we come to Earth, we agree to come with a group of souls who help us find our way back home. This is how I feel about my dear friend.

      Your poem captures those feelings precisely as only a skilled observer and commentator of the human condition can. Wonderful work, Dream On.

      I truly appreciate it.

      Well written, and well expressed.

      Gypsy Rose Lee Every time I read about your life it touches me greatly. To lose the love of your life and still have so much more love to give. I think in the back of everyones mind we think we will be together forever. When we start a relationship and things all fall into place. Our family grows and we age. Then life some how gives us things we do not understand or can comprehend. We owe it to ourselves and the people we love to live on. I know it is easier said than done. I have not had to deal with that situation. I have lost all of my uncles and every aunt except one. Both my parents are gone. I have three brothers and my oldest brother died young. At the age of 68. I feel a terrible loss. Then again our own parents experienced the same loss of their own family as we grew up and gave them more joy. The cycle of life continues.... if we can respect and honor those people in our lives now and cherish the memories of the people we know and loved so much then life will flourish in ways we can't even imagine. Thank you for sharing so many lovely, sometimes sad stories. My wife Cami our cat Charlotte send our biggest and warmest hugs from Maine. Here it is as cold as 1 degrees and I am sure your probably swimming. Have a great day.

      True and forever friends are a treasure. I don't know what I would have decided to do or where I would have gone if my best friend from the 6th grade with whom I continued to stay in touch with through all the years had not said I have an apartment to rent come to Florida. Only after when we finally got together again and could talk we discovered that we had been living pretty similar lives with some differences here and there. I had lost my husband and soul mate after 20 + years together, she had had a 14 year loving relationship with her soul mate a rock star that we both idolized in our teen years and who had passed on recently so many many things true friends seem to wind up sharing in life without even knowing it. We both sorrow but she has it better than me even with that relationship she managed to hold her family together and has three sons while I had to go it alone. Hope you have an inspirational new week.
