We were buddies, Our friendship would never end.

Our years of childhood, Together were spent.

Through the school years, inseparable we grew,

There were no secrets, what one knew, the other did too

Chapters of my Life

We were buddies, Our friendship would never end.

Our years of childhood, Together were spent.

Through the school years, inseparable we grew,

There were no secrets, what one knew, the other did too.

But alas it happened. Adolescence passed us by,

Until he became, a chapter of my life.

She was a beauty, A charm that brought laughter to my eyes.

I became the first to know her, one beautiful, starlit night.

She was my lady, I became her prince.

Inseparable, together, Ah, the countless hours we spent.

Love unending. The months passed us by,

But somehow, someway, she became a chapter of my life.

I did my stint, sailed the mighty seas,

But quickly I knew, this wasn’t for me,

Would things had differed, if I had reached for the skies?

I’ll never know, another chapter of my life.

She wasn’t much to look at, small and skinny at her best.

But love blossomed, roses and thorns, now the test.

The fragrance of the roses, the blood from the thorns,

Joined our lives together, two children were born.

Lives spent together, different books being made.

I pray their lives fill with chapters, before, aside, their books are laid..

He, too, a friend, The Sire that gave me breath.

Though she, my mother, cushioned my many tests.

I strived so hard to keep the sparkle in his eye,

But the Gods cared not, he became a chapter of my life.

For me the chapters are shorter, the epilogue rushes near.

Soon my book will close, or so I’ve began to fear.

I’ve had so many chapters, the lovers, the friendships, my wife.

Who will read the ending? These chapters of my life.
