Flowers for a Friend: A Poem by Glen C. Sheppard

I wish upon a star each time i think of you,

that you will always be there, valiant and true.

I want to give you flowers

before you go away,

but I can never think of

the words I’m trying to say.

 

So here I write it down (no ink),

the thoughts run through my mind,

the sound of finger to the board,

giving out this rhyme.

 

I want to give you sunsets,

to sing my good friends praise.

My lack of consideration I do not own.

So words are all I’m giving you,

pale and incomplete.

I want to give you so much more,

but alas, I am in defeat.

 

Thank you for your friendship,

the good times and the hard.

I want you to always know this,

you’re forever in my heart.
