I Miss My Friend – A Poem for the Lovelorn

boboleechron5

I miss the times,
We walked and talked…
about dogs & cats & interest rates…
I miss the hours,
We’d spend together…
Staring at each other in each others’ eyes!
I miss the fun,
We used to share…
On Thursday afternoons…
I miss you, friend,
And always will…
Don’t forget, and please write soon!

I miss the times,
I’d call you up…
Just to hear you speak.
We’d talk for hours!
Sunday to Sunday…
Almost every day of the week!
I miss your smile,
It cheered me up…
whenever I felt blue
I miss the feelings,
I used to feel…
When I said “I love you”.

I miss you constantly…
You’re on my mind, in my sleep,
…and when I wake…
I kneel by my bed,
…and say a prayer…
…hoping to see your face!

But it never happens!
(I don’t know why)
Maybe I’m not trying hard enough…
But, sooner or later,
I know I’ll be reaping,
The rewards of my unreturned love….

I miss my friend…

Will there ever be an end,
to the pain her absence puts me through?
I can’t tell, but I know…
the stronger I’ll grow,
…every second I’m away…
…from you.

I wrote this when I had just turned 18.  I’d fallen in love with a girl a few streets away from my home.  She moved to East Trinidad, a few months before migrating to the US, and I was missing her like crazy. This poem was one of my ways of coping with her absence.  It didn’t help pay the phone bill I’d run up though.  😕

Oh, and the pictures have nothing to do with the poem. I took them today, and thought they’d look nice, that’s all.  They were taken in West Trinidad… Chaguaramas and Tucker Valley.

Happy Valentine’s Day.   Regardless of whether you’re “coupled” or not… make the day special.

Peace and Rice,

Beautiful Tobago « New Bobolee Pix

Beautiful Tobago

Some more pictures of my October’08 Tobago trip.

See them here: Beautiful Tobago « Bobolee Pix

I’m taking some time to learn and understand a bit more about the photo-related WordPress features, like photogalleries.

Please let me know what you think of them, especially as it relates to the “quality” of the pictures.

(Since October?  October? I’m in need of some more Tobago love.  There’s no such thing as too much Tobago …)

*sighs* 🙂

Up Close

An “up close” view of some handmade pouches laid out for sale on the beach at Mt Irvine Bay, Tobago.

She hung them up by their leather strings on an old nail stuck in a tree.

Small Pouches

An “Arts and Craft” vendor’s wares hang from an almond tree on the beach at Mt Irvine Bay, Tobago.

She makes baskets, tablemats, pouches, and various pieces of jewelry by hand, and sells them on the beach to visiting tourists.

Good stuff.

Decorative Rock

I was initially attracted to the clear “stone” you see in the lower right of the pic.

Its actually a piece of louvre pane glass, worn down over time, I guess.

Pelican

Okay, okay… so its not really a pelican… but its the first thing I thought of when I was reviewing the pix.

It actually resembled a black/dark-grey egret of some sort.

Mt Irvine.  Tobago.
