About the Poem
I had this friend who I had known my entire life. He and I were pretty close and we let lust come in the way of that. Now all I am left with is my memories and of course, tears. He read this and told me it was beautiful and I haven't spoke to him since.
Are We Still Friends?
|by Christine Cawley|
|I could have held you all night long,
I could have laid next to you forever,
But then I know tomorrow soon would come,
And still we couldn't be together . . .
I went against what my head was saying,
and followed my heart through,
And instead of quitting while I was ahead,
I started falling in love with you
We had so much fun together,
the memories we made so great,
all those nights laughing and smiling,
staying up so late.
As the snow falls on the sidewalks,
I know this too will pass,
for feelings are like the seasons changing,
and one season never lasts.
So, I know this must stop now,
and tomorrow soon will come,
as we walk away and never look back,
as our warm feelings become numb.
