Dear Best Freind My Apologies.


Dear Best Freind My Apologies.

Dear Friend,

This has been a long time coming, so finely at long last here it is.

We were friends in the olden days, but because of the way our lives were going then we departed and went our separate ways!

As a result we have become two completely different men, but yet we are still best friends.

Quite some time ago it seems; I came to you with a simple line.

The line was: “We need to talk, it’s important.”

You’re reply was quite different then I would have expected.

You simply said: “That’s fine, what is on your mind?”

The next line that I had spoke, will continue to remain lost in time . . . you know who this is to and what the line was.

You Graduated and had made it clear your plans,

So we said farewell, and parted ways and it looked like the end of our friendship days.

Often I’d ponder where you were, what you were doing and how you life is going.

Lying there in bed at night wide awake countless hours after the lights was out.

Dreadfully missing you and doubting if I would see you again or ever hear from you again.

And then something MIRCAULOUS happened one day I rediscovered you my old best friend.

I must say that who I was then is very different from who I am today.

I knew not then the answer to the question I was asking.

But now I stand assuredly that the answer is resoundingly a defiant NO. Still even today I wonder what might have been, if we had answered and acted on the topic then my old best friend.

When asked today how I’m doing, I say I’m fine.

But in all reality I’m still scared and hurt from the images in my mind.

You’re the reason the song was written, but when you left I being smitten had changed the lyrics and made straight the lyrics of a twisted lie- that was how I said good-bye.

I wrote all this to simply say, I am sorry for the man, the way and the question I asked way back when. I am truly sorry my ex-old best Friend.

Yours truly,

The Broken Hearted Wilson in Columbus, Ohio.

I really loved the emotions of love and regret in this poem. I hope you find some emotional resolve. Thanks for sharing...............E



Thank you, but the emotional resolve came with the writing of this poem it was my way of fiding closeure to an old chapter of my life and is now the healing stone for my future!

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.
