About the Poem

Once a friend, I say, should be always a friend. I once was called a "keeper of friendships." I hold those thoughts dear and words so dear to me

Words We Said

Yes I am a keeper
You gave me things to keep
Thoughts, memories, words
All comfort in my sleep

We both chose those words
Keeper I don’t use lightly
Where do you keep yours
I think about mine nightly

The keeping lasts forever
Forever is what you said
Happy to have them with me
Each time I go to bed

Hope this is not in vain
A keeper I chose to be
Hope you hold the thoughts
I keep those sent to me

Remember what you said
Because I always do
A keeper of fond memories
Should last a lifetime through

Really really touching and it lingers in my thoughts

One of the "best" play on word poems I have encountered, with a heart felt message also.
