A Letter To An Old Friend

© Taleshia K Glover

Published on January 2008

Childhood friends? I hope we still are.
Years have put space between us and now you seem so far.
Childhood promises never seem to stick.
Best friends forever is an old classic.
What would happen in the future
We were not aware.
Who could forget that one special person that was always there?
The arms into which you fall.
The one to which you crawl.
No more playing in the back yard.
Growing up sure makes being friends hard.
From kids to teenagers we have grown so much.
I wonder how such good friends seem to lose touch.
Maybe destiny will hopefully let us meet again.
Until then this is a letter to an old friend.

When I was in elementary school I had a best friend like the one in this poem. But he had to move and his parents didn't tell him so we didn't get to say good bye. But the day after I read this I went to an event and he was there and I told him about the poem and he said he had read it the day before too. So thank you for writing this poem.
