Sonnet: A Lost Friendship - Poem by Dr John Celes

You were my friend then: now almost stranger!
Our friendship appeared once very glorious;
What happened meantime, gives me great anger;
Our friendship no longer remains serious.

Fool you were, to be misled by others,
Who drove a giant wedge ’midst our friendship;
Cut off is our friendship, which me bothers;
A nadir has come in our relationship.

What years of intimacy have been lost?
You’ve been foolish, very much on your part;
Our friendship today is just but a ghost;
Won’t your eyes see the true love in my heart?

Dear friend however, you can’t be my foe;
I hope that our friendship, blossoms once more!

    here! here! great poem, I know exactlly how you feel. what was once there, has gone from me, what was shown no longer seen. friendship it was friendship it seemed, but now that friendship is nothing more than a floaded dream, until that one day my friend comes back to me... anyhow keep up the good work, and if you have time check out some of mine.
