an ode to my friends

All may seem different
Things may have changed
But let us not forget
You are all my friends indeed
All of you have given me
A piece of treasure
Of something that I will always keep
This treasure is our memories
So let us never forget
Even if one is to pass away
Let us take a look back
Of all the happy things
I thank those of you
Who have made me happy
Even when we graduate
I will always remember you

We never forget the friends of our youth. I know I still cherish each one today, as they found a permanet place in my heart. Great poem!

Memories of friends may fade or even get rusty, but rarely die, unlike the friends they were born of. I have had quite a few friends die while I grew up and their memory lives on after 40 years. A great presentation of the warmth of friendship and the simple treasure of memory! Thanks for sharing!

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
