About the Poem

I once had a friend, that no matter how hard we tried we always ended up in disagreements. This poem was written to let him know that no matter our arguments, our friendship would always be there.

Very beautiful. Just what I am feeling.
Hey Judy I had a great friend walk away from my life as well, and this poem says exactly wat I feel. So in away you've helped find the perfect words to express how I feel thank you and may god bless you.
this poem is Very touchy, very emotional. i'll let my friend know what i feel about him, what i expected out of him and what he had done to me. the expectations, the friendship, the love, that i dint get from him. but yet he had left a scar on my heart. that remembers of him evey sec in my life He atleast hated me, i was a part in his life i like you very much. my friendship is true.

Quiet Emotions

I always wanted more from you
than you were willing to give;
So now we've gone our separate ways
each with different lives to live.

The bond will always be there
the friendship always intact;
But the time for us has come and gone
and the pages of time, you can't turn back.

I will always be a friend to you
and wonder how you are;
The smiles and laughter I will remember
and our fights have become painless scars.

Sometimes on those busy days
when you've a thousand things to do;
Please let me glide slowly through your mind
and spend some time with you.

In that quiet moment
when you're surprised to find me there;
Just remember even with the distance between us
I am still someone who cares.

I have had a friend for 34 years. I always try to be there for her. She lost her husband a few months ago,my husband and I helped her do everthing and then we started to hear the hurtful things she is saying behind our backs. I just wish she would own up to what she has said ,and admit that she was wrong. so I am going to e mail her this poem because I think it says how I feel down deep. Mary

Hi Judy, Your poem is really touched me and matched with my situation. I tried to find a poem that about my feeling . coz me and a friend got ruin up our friendship for unreasoning explaination. THere is so much things that we can't get a chance to explain. We both don't mean to be friend I guess. but I wish to let her know how much her friendship mean to me. And She is totally all WRONG about me. but I won't claim or hate her. Coz a friend need to learn how to forgive. Frienship is hard to find and hard to keep. so I guess I just "Thank" for your words putting all my feeling into pieces. a wonderful poem. Thx for the hard work. your words mean to me, so others?? Thx Dr. Ann
Your poem seemed to express everything i was trying to say. Thank you x
I wish I could write something like this poem. I've related to it in so many ways. thank you :)
This poem touched me deeply it made me realise that has happened to me and my friend, we have drifted further apart over the last few months, and i would like her to know that still if she ever needs me i will be there for her.
