Sometimes when I think of friends,
I often think of you,
I really miss the love we had, do you miss it too.

We grew up together just two houses apart,
sometimes I didn't know where you ended or where did I start.

Years of boyfriends, fads, and changing our hair
Nothing else mattered, I knew that you cared.

Husbands, children, and of course jobs to,
If I didn't know the answer,you'd tell me what to do.

But something strange has happened and we've gone our separate ways,
I'm not sure where all the years went, not even the days.

We never had a cross word, or never had that fear,
maybe thats the problem, we were never very clear.

I guess that people change, but I still think of you,
and I wonder after all this time
do you?

We were friends for about 30 years,
and spoke everyday,
then over the last 5 years, we just went our separate ways.

I love you and I miss you, and maybe one day it will change,
but right now when I talked to you it just felt a little strange.

I won't give up that we will be OK, but it will have to be tomorrow, Because it won't be today.....

I'm writing this in a little frustration over a friendship that truly was wonderful for over 30 years, then things just changed, I pray it was not me, but then maybe it'd be better if was me, because I could say I'm sorry...I miss you Katy,.Love Becky

    I'd have to say it was probably neither one of you! I've had many friends that I talked to everyday for 10 years and we eventually lost touch! Honestly most of my closest friends live in the same town as me (which is very small), but we never visit! Life happens and time passes faster every day! If you feel so strongly, you should contact her! Don't let doubt get in the way of a friendship that you truly miss....I'm sure Katy would be glad to hear from you! Love ya~Holly

    Oh yeah, and the poem is brilliant as always! :)

    Becky, first and foremost before I give my comment about this poem, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the kind words you said to me on my poem! You are the very best person and this world would be great if there were more Becky's like you! You told me by the sounds of it I would be a friend that you'd never forget..well by this fantastic dedication, it sounds the same about you as well...I am so very sorry you are hurting over this lost friendship! You do NOT deserve to be hurt or sad...Let me tell you though, if this friend just stopped talking to you for no reason or a reason that your unsure of, it was definatley her loss...I mean now that you've been commenting on my work it's kind of been hard for me to think what a comment page would look like and sound like if you didn't comment! You are a terrific person and God made a wonderful person out of you...You're writing is amazing Becky and please don't stop!! Keep your head up and be strong everyday!
    Much Love to you my friend! 5 gold stars

    Hello Becky. I just finished reading the comment that you left me for my poem "Hoping For The Best For Who Is Me". Your comment brought me to tears. It's people like you that inspire me to move on and be strong. You're an amazing person and your words mean so much to me. I am so jealous of your children, I wish you can be my mother. Your kids must be happy to have someone like you in their lives. I've just got an alocholic for a mom, and a dad who is in jail for beating me. Thank you for helping me in my times of need. You will always be in my heart. God bless
