“What are you doing?” asked Gracie. “I’m making some pencil sketches of you and the others.” “Why would you do that?” “So I won’t forget any of you.” “You aren’t forgetful.

Poem No. 132: “This One” by an Unknown Author

Gedichte, poems, Psychologie, psychology

I think I’m starting to understand
What real beauty is. 
Because when you look into the eyes of someone 
Who is both nice
But decisive as well, 
Inner beauty means so much more. 

I really like her.
I think she kind of gets me,
And it gets me
That I might regret me
If I don’t say something.
If I could say that
What I feel
Isn’t that big of a deal
It’s just that
She’s real
This one. 

Poem No. 131: “YOU” by M. Wang

Gedichte, poems

I still remember the first day we met.
We were too shy to say much at all.
It’s funny to think back to that time,
Because now we’re having a ball!

They say that true friendship is rare,
An adage that I believe to be true.
Genuine friendship is something that I cherish.
I am so lucky to have met you.

Our bond is extremely special.
It is unique in its own way.
We have something irreplaceable. 
I love you more and more each day.

We’ve been through so much together.
In so little time we’ve shared ,
I will never forget all the moments
That you’ve shown me how much you cared.

Friends are forever,
Especially the bond that you and I possess.
I love your fun-filled personality.
Somehow you never fail to impress.

The world could use more people like you.
It would certainly be a better place.
I love everything about you.
You are someone I could never replace.

You are always there for me
When my spirits need a little lift.
I cannot thank you enough for that.
You are truly an extraordinary gift.

You are everything to me and more.
I could never express that enough.
Life is such a treacherous journey, and
Without you it would be even more tough.

Our story will continue to grow
With each passing day,
Because I trust that with you by my side,
Everything will always be okay.

You are so dear to me.
You know I will love you until the end.
I will always be there for you, and
You will always (and forever) be my best friend.

Poem No. 127: “Forgive Me?” by an unknown Author

No matter how much we fight,
I’ll always be by your side.
We’ve been through too much
To let what we have slide. 
For years you’ve put up with me;
You’re my best friend, 
I can always count on you; now it’s my turn to lend.
This is all my fault, 
Don’t let this turn our friendship gray.
I love you, and that’s all I have to say.

Poem No. 117: “My Loyal Friend” by Pat Fleming

Gedichte, Nature, poems

Outside my bedroom window
Stands an old majestic tree.
She’s been standing there for decades,
Just as proud as she can be.

And every morning when I wake,
She’s the first thing I see.
This lovely constant in my life,
So magnificent and free.

I can see the early, rising sun
Peeking through her lush green leaves.
I can hear her moving gently,
In the summer’s warming breeze.

She has a personality
That she wants the world to see.
And her moods are ever changing
Behind her silent dignity.

She responds to every season,
In her own unfettered way.
All we have to do is gaze at her
To know what season’s on its way.

In the Spring she comes alive again,
As her leaves begin to bloom.
And beneath the sun’s attention,
You can almost see her swoon.

And in the heat of the summertime,
When her joy is magnified.
She has never looked more beautiful,
All “decked out to the nines.”

And when the Fall comes creeping in,
And a chill floats on the breeze,
She prefers to don more earthy tones,
And does just what she please.

But when the Winter’s looming large,
It’s impossible to hide
As her barren limbs droop soulfully.
They betray her grief inside.

She’s stood by me through all my days.
She’s watched me laugh and cry.
She’s listened so intently
While I’ve pondered on my life.

And when I see her dank and weary,
I will sit with her sometimes.
And all the years we’ve shared together
Will come rushing back to mind.

But both of us are strong and true.
We’ve become the closest friends,
And we will weather every storm
Together till the end.

Poem No. 86: “True Friendship” – “Wahre Freundschaft” by A.M. Knight

Gedichte, poems

It isn’t the years,
It isn’t the tears
That makes life worthwhile.
It’s the memories that grew
And the people you knew
That will bring back a smile.

Mistakes that were made,
Plans often mislaid
Are a part of the past.
What you’ve kept in your mind
Is where you will find
What you wished to hold fast.

Some things in life
May be had without strife. 
It can happen that way.
Still, a friendship is earned,
And where love is concerned,
I’m willed to say.

When life draws to a close,
Let me be one of those
To cry, “Life has been great!”
It’s the friends that were made,
Those who lived unafraid.
That is proof of the world we create.

 Es sind nicht die Jahre,
Es sind nicht die Tränen
die das Leben wertvoll machen.
Es sind die Erinnerungen, die wachsen
Und Menschen, die man kannte
die dich lächeln lassen.

Fehler, die gemacht wurden,
Pläne, die häufig verschoben wurden
sind ein Teil der Vergangenheit. 
Was du im Gedächtnis behalten hast
Ist wo du es finden wirst
was du festhalten wolltest.

Einige Dinge im Leben
hattest du vielleicht ohne Kampf (Mühe erhalten).
So etwas kann passieren.
Doch eine Freundschaft ist zu verdienen.
soweit Liebe betroffen ist, 
bin ich bereit, zu sagen.

Wenn das Leben dem Ende entgegen geht,
lasse mich einer derjenigen sein,
der weint, "das Leben war großartig!"
Es sind die Freunde, die gewonnen wurden,
diejenigen die ohne Ängstlichkeit lebten,
das ist der Nachweis der Welt, die wir geschaffen haben.
