Once upon a Friend

24 Aug

Just like the flower from the tiny seed
Springs forth in its luxurious beauty
Splendid in its magnificence
Producing scents that rise and flow
And fill the air with pleasant bouquet
So it was when we met
And friendship was born
We were joined stamen to pistil
And birthed joys beyond compare
Laughter bubbled forth
Hearty laughter that flows from the heart and causes the mind to dwell in a place of peace, love, happiness.

And then the sun came and chased off the morning dew
The sun took its place in the Eastern sky majestic
Scorching in its Sahara-ness
Upon the delicateness of the freshly sprung bloom
Causing it to whittle and die
Just like our friendship now gone
The laughter now forlorn
We part, stamen from pistil
Consigning our friendship to what once was, what we once had, what should have been.

    Sighs. Friendships can still rise like a phoenix from the ashes
