    Friends

     

    We had each other

    and each other’s back,

    We shared a common space

    with common mind;

    We were friends.

     

    We took our time

    and never felt the lack,

    We chilled and spilled,

    found respite from the grind;

    We were friends.

     

    There simple trust 

    found reciprocity,

    And navigated mood

    on Huck Finn’s river raft;

    We were friends.

     

    Grief reminded

    of life’s velocity,

    And so we sang,

    until somebody laughed;

    We were friends.

    Awww...I loved this one! I especially like how you pulled in the reference to Huck Finn's river raft--it added to the mood and feel of the poem!

    It is a noble history when one can trace that a song was sung among friends in the face of death. It is even richer when transcendant laughter distains its sting in hope that, after all, death will not be the end of the story.

    Harver,. this poem is outstanding. It simple captures the pure essence of what friends should be. Great write

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
