It’s Okay My Friend

~

It’s okay, my friend from long ago,
Not to be as close as we were then.
Our different paths have taken us
To where we are today.

It’s okay, my friend from long ago,
To disagree more than we did before.
Life’s experiences give us the views
That we believe today.

It’s okay, my friend from long ago,
To walk together as we did then.
Our different thoughts won’t separate
The friends we’ve always been.

It’s okay, my friend from long ago,
To stop and visit now and then.
This place, this stone that marks my rest,
For friends will always remember when.

How Long is Forever?

Originally posted on Memory Bears by Bonnie:

How long is forever, how short is never?
How far is yesterday, how near is tomorrow?

How big is a mountain, compared to the sky?
How deep is the ocean, can fish really fly?

Questions are the door to knowledge, but for some questions, there are no answers. Sometimes knowing is a comfort and sometimes not knowing is a blessing. Life is unpredictable and with each corner we turn, there are challenges to meet and moments that we cannot control. There will always be more questions than answers, but where there are no answers, there is faith and hope.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

(Hebrews 11:1 NKJV)

An Open Mind

What would it be like
If instead of voicing our opinion,
We chose to listen
To another point of view?

If what we believe,
We just cannot agree.
Does that make one wrong?
And the other one right?

The truth we both claim,
We just cannot see,
From a different point of view,
Perhaps, it is the same.

Must everything we read,
Relate to what we believe.
How dull our thoughts become,
If, in all the choices, we only chose one.

The Days of Youth

~~~

As I walk along this familiar path,
Yesterdays return to me.
Those days of youth so long ago,
Thoughts of home and family.

Summer love that warmed my heart,
That first kiss in the pouring rain.
Embracing, vowing, ever to be,
Then summer ended, as did the dream.

Age has found its place in me,
As I recall what used to be.
Memories of yesteryear,
Thoughts of home and family.

~~~
