To My Good Friend

The Distance less travelled is a road of shattered dreams
The pain and sorrows left behind are backward flowing streams
You go through life imagining all the things you want
But before you understand them all they’ll do is haunt
I been alive for 20 years I watched them come and go
And here I sit again my friend not having any to hold
So take my word I mean you well embrace your life right now
For right before your weary eyes, you’ll wonder when and how.
I made mistakes throughout my life; I’ve tried to make them right
But each and every time I try I end up here at night
I can’t explain the way things work I just know that they are
Don’t look too much ahead of you; you may just look too far
Love is another option; you’ll have throughout your life
But always keep in mind my friend; it can hurt much like a knife
It can wake you every morning, or put you in your grave
Everyone must take that fall, just stand there and be brave
At some point in your life, you’ll find a special friend
One that disregards your flaws and loves you till the end
Don’t confuse the love you feel it’s different than before
Hold on tight to what it is, letting go will make you poor
A best friend in my eyes is much more than friend
Its understanding, loyalty, dedication to the end
Its long car rides, swings and slides, its ice cream late at night
It’s sharing thoughts, and frozen drinks, it’s that petty little fight
My friend I share these feelings to let you know I care
I’d never turn my back on you, not even on a dare
So understand this one last thing before I say goodbye
I made this poem just for you, my best friend till I die’

I hope we can be like we were before and give me a chance to explain myself to you and i don’t want to have any misunderstanding between us anymore. PJ
