    I strolled down the avenue one day
    browsing and beholding all to do and weigh.
    It’s been a while since I’ve been there
    So I found myself anticipating your hair.

    I thought back to a short time ago
    To a period when…you were filled with woe.
    All you said and did was held locked in my heart
    Time well shared - precious and without rot.

    Tears besieged my soul for those moments,
    Missing you and all your special ways.
    My aspirations all suppressed now
    Only reflections; tanned and present.

    I turned to the left hoping to end my trip,
    I looked in back in despair knowing you should not return.
    Departing to go it alone, I felt part of my heart shred
    Cause I did not glimpse you on this avenue called
    ‘Friendship’ my ray of hope.

    know that GOD places in our path those who bring something to our lives. some are for a lifetime...others are for a moment. regardless of the timespan, we grow with each passing.

    continue your journey along friendship avenue.:)

    This poem makes me think of some of the "revolving" friendships that I have made, and I smile at the memories that come with them! Nice Piece
