Your Best Friend

Post by Frog on 5th November 2009, 5:55 pm

Do you have one? I f you do, can you remember the last time you told them how special they are to you and what they mean to your world?

If you can't remember then please pick up the phone now, or better still go and see them because you just don't know when these wonderful people can be taken away from you. I still have my best friend but today I stood by my brother while he said goodbye to his and it broke my heart.

Time is so precious, please don't ever forget that.

Friends Are Forever.........

My mind is wandering back
To when we were boys
All through our childhood
We shared our toys

We grew up together
Never were we apart
We were like twins
Sharing the same heart

When we left school
We shared the same job
We enlisted in the army
We joined the same mob

We trained side by side
We went through the pain
We grew from boys to men
We would never be the same

Then off to Northern Ireland
Like the three tours before
To protect the vulnerable people
From this mindless civil war

Patrolling the streets of Belfast
Or the countryside of Armagh
We were protecting each other
Never ever straying too far

I still remember that morning
It`s implanted in my mind
How did I miss that wire
Why, oh why was I blind

Now after all these years
Each one comes and goes
Never will I forget you
As on your grave I place a rose


Hi LP, This poem was written by me in memory of my best mate, who was sadly killed in Northern Ireland in the 70s.. not one day goes by that I dont think about him...the words of the poem tells it all really and even after all these years I still miss him... takecare both of you....

If I Knew.....

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.
If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.
If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.
If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.
For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.
There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"
But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.
So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,
That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.
So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear.
Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

Another poem where the words say it all....

Ty, interesting point. I was going to ask if everyone had someone they call a best friend but I thought that sort of detract from the overly sentimental feeling I was experiencing yesterday. I know who my best friend is and although I don't speak to him as often as I should he was there for me in a flash yesterday.

Thank you all for your kind words Peck

Thank you Syl, I appreciate your sentiments and I to am sorry that you have had to lose such important people in your life. Maybe time can't heal all wounds but I'm hoping that it makes the symptoms easier to bear for those that were closest to him.

Jezabel, I want you to allow the enormity of your feelings for your loss friend to enter your mind, once they are in your thoughts and you can feel just how strong those feelings are I want you to remember this.

Your friend loved you as much as you loved her, those feelings you have now were the same for your friend. We all spend so much time thinking do the most special people in our lives feel the same way about me as I do about them, and the answer is always yes. Your friend loved you and she would hate to think of carrying any guilt over her passing. You don't have to always say how you feel for someone to know it and you don't ever have to punish yourself for the things you should have done.

Be at peace Jez, I know your friend would have wanted that for you. xx
