Childhood Friends

As childhood friends, we grew up together,
Swearing to be friends forever and ever.
Sometimes we would argue and fight,
Other times we would laugh and stay up all night.

We went from playing with games and toys,
To talking and dreaming about different boys.
My thoughts and feelings, to you I would confide,
Never having anything to hide.

Friends we do remain,
Things changing, and things staying the same.
To each other we still listen and share,
About each other, we will always care.

I think this poem was very toching for me. I was just what I was looking for. My childhood friend was my cousin. We would share everything, tell each other everything. But now that we are in High School and we got our own groups of friends and everything, our friendship is not the same. When I read this poem I thought about all the fun we used to have together. I sent her the poem, so I hope that she feels the same,and we can get our old friendship back. Thank you for know just how i fell and putting it in words.
