About the Poem

I grew up as an only child but I had a cousin that was very, very close. This poem is about the wonderful friend I found in my cousin.


I know you're still out there
Living life with your kind of flair
Standing with your face to the sun
Picturing your time to come

Many clouds have passed by
Since we stood under the same sky
Taking in the summer sights
Howling at the city lights

I still remember when we were young
Pulling pranks just for fun
Summer vacations were such a blast
The kind of memories that will always last

Growing up the future seemed like such a sure thing
Thought we knew what it would bring
True love, a family, a house in the hills
Work hard, play hard and don't sweat the bills

Never guessed things would change so much
Thought our friends would never loose touch
The stars seemed so clear from our domain
I sure could handle some of those good times again

Even if our dreams still seem far away
Our friendship will be right here to stay
Until we are both gone
The road between us will never be too long

Hi I heard about this site and for the first time i read this poem and i felt this really heart touching i feel that everyone would experience the same
Your Poem is of "Friend" is VERY good. I had a friend pass away, recently. Thanx
this is really touching
I love this poem because just a few months ago I joined myspace. com hoping that my childhood friends would find me and it worked. I would have never found them because they mostly all of them live in different states now. After they found me I was looking for something really nice to put on my blog and this poem was just perfect. Growing up I moved around alot but these specific friends are the ones that I wished I had never lost touched with and this poem really explains how I feel about all of them. It eally hit close to home. Thank you Robson Grant! Great job!:)
I loved this poem. it helped me get over the fact the my BEST friend Jasmine was moving to Califorina. I miss her so much. But his did help me realize that even though she wasn't in my state, she was STILL my best friend.
I was searching for a poem to send to a new friend but the instant I started reading I had to mail it off to a friend that I don't see that often any more. It is perfect, and Robson is correct in saying "the road between us is never too long. "
This is a great poem. I think I was almost brought to tears.

I grew up with my cousins and lived with them for a while as a child and teenager. This poem sparked some very vivid memories. There were seven of us all together and what one could not think of the other could. We had some great times. So there was always trouble. Very good! Kathy

I liked this poem because it reminds me of my best friend who has been there for me since pre-school!
it reminds me of the days when we were kids
This poem truly brought out the meaning of a childhood friend.
My bestfriends and I always thought as kids we'd always be together. And yes, Life holds tons of different pathes and which we all took different ones. I became a mother at 16 years old & then had three more kids then in 2000 got married, one went to college then started a family & got married, the other one gat married & travels all the time. We talk once in a while, but not like we use too.
This was the great peom. I touched my heart. i told all my friends to read it.
