***written this March-my 1st poem ever here-posted in the OLD forums***
Sometimes when you love someone it hurts you real bad Along with friendship come the good times and also come the sad There are things that have to happen that affect you and your friend And there's nothing you can do about it except wait for the end. You wish that you could just reach out and take away the pain But from all the grief and sorrow there is something you can gain. Remember that the book of life never states things will be fair And sometimes all that you can do is show your friend you care. These situations teach you the real meaning of strife And the lessons you will learn from them will last you all your life.
Nail to the mast her holy flag, Set every threadbare sail- And give her to the god of storms, The lightning and the gale! -Oliver Wendell Holmes
