About the Poem

This poem reflects my views on friendship. I was once with a bunch of very dear friends at a camp known as the Illinois Teenage Institute (ITI).When it was time for us all to leave each other, one of the guys said to remember that if we needed each other all we had to do was look at the stars. Since I moved to college, I have understood and appreciated the concept much more. I was down in the dumps one night and walking when this poem came to mind, so I wrote it and sent it to my friends. I would now like to share it with everyone in this world who realizes the importance of friendship.

Up In The Sky

When you are down
And you want to get high,
Just take a good look
Up in the sky.

What you will see
Are the stars above,
And all you need
Is to proclaim your love.

Who you will find
And see so clear,
Are friends in mind
You want to hold near.

Whenever you need them
Just look up high,
Call their name
And see them fly.

Every friend you meet
Owns a star
And you can see them
No matter how far.

Whenever you are down
And want to get high,
Just take a good look
Up in the sky.
