Lost Friend Poems

Poetry for Old Friends that You've Lost Touch With

Someone with all the money in the world but no one to enjoy it with, would be depressed. Admittedly that's an extreme example, but the truth is that all of the enjoyable things in the world get old quickly without a friend to share them with. On the other hand, if a person was experiencing all the hardships in the world, they may go insane without the aid of a friend. People that don't have anyone to socially interact may lose their minds and develop an imaginary friend just to ease the loneliness. Human interaction is necessary. It is simply the way that we are wired.
