Poem on Long Lost Friends

Once was here now is gone
I will always love forever the laughs the tears the smiles
without her my life has no direction no ups nor downs
no smiles or frowns
I miss her I cry I see her I lie
what ever went wrong I can mend
I will always love forever my very best friend

Sometimes crying or laughing
are the only options left,
and laughing feels better right now.
