About the Poem

I wrote this poem as a companion piece to "We're Not In Love". After the relationship had ended with the man that the first poem was about, we became closer than we had ever been. We now enjoy a special kind of friendship that is very rare and comfortable. This piece is about our new relationship as friends.


Where are you going, where have you been?
My dear, close, and quiet friend,
As we sit in the soft springtime Saturday's end
Taking comfort in each other once again.

Tell me your stories and I'll tell you mine;
And so we will pass a few hours time
With the quaint and the comic and even sublime -
Silently searching for that elusive sign.

We'll fashion the future and polish the past,
Allowing the memories to amass;
While the grains of sand slip through the glass
'Til a tranquil lull pervades at last.

Conversation fades with the eve's golden light,
We cannot go on, try though we might;
So you gather me an embrace so tight,
And we wistfully, longingly say goodnight.

lovely poem from a guy who reads very little poetry
This poem is really nice. But, it does make me sad. When I am reading it, I am hoping that I could just be with the person I love. But if that doesn't happen, I want him to be my best friend.
This poem describes my wife and I perfectly. We have always been freinds and I hope we always are.
This poem says so much about the perfect friend and that's all it can be.

Very touching...about two people searching for that elusive sign of love in each other. Coming close, at times, but not quite reaching the goal. Yet, there is hope. Thank you, Tina K.
