Friendship

True Friendship, as emailed to me by my good friend Patricia!
Are you tired of those sissy 'friendship' poems that always sound good, But never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship.You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card-Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.
1. When you are sad -- I will jump on the person who made you sad like a spider monkey jacked up on mountain dew.
2. When you are blue -- I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
3. When you smile -- I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.
4. When you are scared -- I will rag on you about it every chance I get.
5. When you are worried -- I will tell you horrible stories about how much Worse it could be until you quit whining.
6. When you are confused -- I will use little words.
7. When you are sick -- Stay away from me until you are well again. I don't want whatever you have.
8. When you fall -- I will point and laugh at your clumsy butt.
9. This is my oath.... I pledge it to the end. 'Why?' you may ask; 'because you are my friend'.
Friendship is like peeing your pants,everyone can see it,But only you can feel the true warmth..

How soon they forget.

We are images, pale, hazey.
Spiraling through your memory
like twists of smoke.
Phantoms dancing around the edge of your consciousness.
Laughing and running away as you try to see us.
Faces, once familiar, fade in and out of focus.
Changing. Morphing. Maddening.
Memories, once monuments to friendship
crumble into ruin.
We are disconsolate.
We live on only in your mind.
As you forget us, we die.
Buried in the mass grave of your past.
Yet, if you live on perhaps it is
only because we remember you.
