  8. What Matters Most

    • By Louis
    • Published by Family Friend Poems June 2017 with permission of the Author.

    I wrote this poem while I was in jail. I missed a lot of things while I was gone, and the one thing that I missed that really gets to me is my daughter's graduation. I've done a lot of soul searching and looking for answers, and what I've come up with is that there is nothing more precious than time. You can't turn it back and you can't start over. I have a lot of guilt, but life is a learning experience, right? So I'm going to turn this into a positive thing.

    in Graduation Poems

    Embrace who you are,
    And love like a fool.
    Try not to judge,
    And never be cruel.

  10. Speak The Language Of Your Heart

    Too often in life, we fail to tell our loved ones how important they are to us. We need to do that every day before it's too late.

  14. Time Goes By

    • By Crystal Lewis
    • Published by Family Friend Poems February 2015 with permission of the Author.

    I wrote this poem as I considered how often it is that we go through life assuming and judging others, while we do not fully understand their actions. At the time I wrote this poem there was a lot of distress in my family, and I realized that so often we become disconnected, angry, and hurt that it impacts our relationships. The poem speaks of forgiveness and understanding that we only have individuals in our lives for a certain amount of time and that it is better to heal rather than to blame.

    in Inspirational Poems

    Time goes by and slips away
    Just as the sky turns from blue to grey.
    We are here but only for a short stay.
    Don't let life pass with words you never say.

  18. The Number 24 Bus

    • By Paul Hayward
    • Published by Family Friend Poems June 2018 with permission of the Author.

    I have wasted too much time looking forward and anticipating what I think will be ahead of me instead of living for today and enjoying life now. Suddenly I am a middle-aged man with more time behind me that in front. I now know that I must live for the moment and take in the colors and the scenery that surround me.

    in Life Lesson Poems

    Life is like a journey on the number 24 bus,
    So welcome aboard, young one; come, sit here with the rest of us.
    Let's hope you're going to be on here for more than just a while.
    Look out of the window, young one, and enjoy every single mile.

  21. Pebbles

    • By Derek T
    • Published by Family Friend Poems April 2015 with permission of the Author.

    Too often in life, people don't appreciate the things they have - the simple things that money cannot buy. They get too caught up in looking to tomorrow, the future, that they don't stop to appreciate today, the memories they are currently making. I wrote this to open the eyes of those who go through this life too fast. Those who only concern themselves with material possessions and forget the value of a simple smile....cheers.

    Moves by us so swiftly
    Too often overwhelmed
    Losing sight of life's gift
