Ode to My Ring

Poetry By: Naan

you can fall in love, and you can lose. some fight, and some simply write. I miss the old days, when things were simple, when a simple plastic ring could change your whole world

Ode to My Ring

I was cleaning my old things
I started with the closet
And there I found it
The ring a friend of mine
Gave me as a sign
Of a friendship, so special in my mind.
Many years ago
To all birthdays he came
And we played every game
To be happy was our aim.
Then as we grew up
We drifted apart
Which broke my heart.

Our friendship
Was like a sky
That has found its sunset.
I looked at the ring
And it was still glowing
As if our friendship
Never stopped growing.
I looked at the plastic ring
I looked at its blink
I always called it My Diamond Ring
I remembered how I wore it in Fall and Spring
I remembered how I wore my lovely ring
As every day I would sing:
"My diamond ring
My diamond ring
You cannot take
My diamond ring".
I remembered how it felt
Every time I wore it
My troubles would melt
I felt beautiful
I felt like a queen
Wearing my sweet
Diamond ring.

It was a cheap ring
But its value was more
Than you would think.
The plastic in the heat
Wasn't the best I could feel
But now as I remember
It made me feel love
It made me feel safe
It made me feel like a queen
Like I owned something
everyone wanted
but no one could have it.
I wore it for the first time
In years
And my eyes started
To tear
A friendship that was long lost
Lived in here
In that old closet
In that plastic ring
That seemed to whisper in
my ear:
"My diamond ring
My diamond ring
You cannot take
My diamond ring"

The moral of my ode
is this:
A friendship never dies
It may be forgotten
But in the heart it lives.
Value friendship
Let it grow
Because sometimes
A forgotten friendship
Brings tears to the eye
And regret to the heart
Yet the more special it was
The bigger is the smile
It brings to your lips.
