Far Away Friends









Far Away Friends

When I see the stars,
you see the sun,
but we both remember
our long days of fun.

When I see the sun,
you see the stars,
but distance can’t end
a friendship like ours.

I may live here,
and you may live there,
but we will be friends
no matter the where.


I’m stepping away from my desk for a moment. A friend asked me for a poem for her son because his best friend is moving to Shanghai. I couldn’t easily find one (suggestions welcome!) so I wrote this for them.
