When And Where Again

As I sit here on the shore
and watch the waves roll in
It brings back the memories
of when and where again

I can see your deep blue eyes
upon the cresent moon
and all I can think about
is that sunlit afternoon

Back when we were only kids
who thought we knew it all
Always running head on in life
Never afraid to take a fall

I can't believe just how naive
we really were back then
Thinking we could conquer the world
when we were merely men

We failed to see all the stop signs
life threw up along the way
'Til you were abruptly taken from me
on that fateful day

I would that I could make a wish
and bring you back my friend
As I sit here thinking of a time
of when and where again


*******************************

In loving memory of

I shall never forget you my friend.

Ron, I'd like to ask if this poem makes it into the book could you please leave the memorial statement? It would mean the world to me. Thanks.

What a terrible loss Jeffrey!
Yet this is a great tribute to him, what a way
to remember a good friend. Share it with the world!  
Well done and hugs to you!

It always helps me to remember that while we wish they were still with us, they would rather remain in heaven.

Jeffrey, I remember reading this in open, and it touched me as deeply now as it did before. I hope my vote helps this worthy poem get published.

I am there with you Jeffrey, in more ways than you know. My Heart goes out to you and my longing and dreams coincide. I was talking to someone last night at a place that I don't frequent much and saw this one fellow I hadn't seen for a while. He said he went through a break-up, I wouldn't have imagined judging by his careless demeanor (I could think of some other adjectives I could use, but they wouldn't be nice at all), that here it was just one week ! Well, there I was honouring an anniversary (3rd) in regards to the One who owns my Heart, but without my Love. Well, to make this short, he tells me to "outen my torch" and snap out of it.Well, I let him have it. I told him to tell that to all the ones who made the Viet Nam memorial and the ones who Remember their Lost Loves, and to the ones who make and visit the Quilts at the Quilt exhibitions. He shut up quick and I am sure he will go on his way in his life never really feeling or deeply sharing anything. I'm with you Jeff, and my Heart too...is a Memorial, A place where my Love still Lives.Without a doubt, I voted for you.
              Peace my friend,  Geoffrey

Tracie, I thank you much m'friend

Geoffrey, I'm sorry to hear that you know of this pain. I have often said that if I was to be given one wish I would wish that no one ever know this feeling. If you don't already know the story behind this poem...

It is a tribute to my best friend who died in a car crash. I was the driver and walked away without a scratch. It took me 8 years to get over the feeling of guilt and then only after visiting his grave for the first time since the funeral. I was kneeling there crying when I felt an awesome feeling of peace come over me. I knew at once that he didn't blame me for what happened. I knew that he never had.

Anyway, this was written as a tribute and reminder to me and anyone who has ever lost a friend that even though they are gone they will never be forgotten.

Peace to you as well my friend
