Friends and friendships are of many types.
Some you meet later in life, some early, while in school,
Of them, some are sweet, some caring, most are fools, and only a few cool,
Social media ones? They are mostly fake and just plain hype.

School friends are like sunshine bright,
They don’t judge, they don’t tease,
With them you can share your darkest secrets with ease.
So even if you have just one of them, hold them tight.

School friends – If you have friends who are as weird as you, then you have everything….

College friends are witness to your metamorphosis- from the shy geek to the confident rockstar,
Ragging, bullying, crush, kiss- they have been witness to all your firsts,
Spending together countless sleepless nights studying, partying and gulping beer to quench thirst.
So whenever you miss them, just meet up and hit the bar.

College Friendship must be built on a solid foundation of alcohol, sarcasm, inappropriateness and shenanigans. …

Work friends are the newest ones,
At first, it’s a struggle to filter out the crowd to find a good one in the muddy pond,
Bitching about bosses during breaks builds the strongest bond,
Fun, frolic and banter continues until the ‘most discussed one’ returns..

Work friends- Chance made us colleagues but the fun we had made us friends..

And then there are some bonuses,
Meet a random person when you least expect,
Get talking and immediately you sense a heartfelt connect,
Who cares if you just met in the park or in one of the cafΓ©s….

Happiness is when you make unexpected, new friends…

So, no matter when, no matter how…
If you’re lucky to find a true friend, never let them go..
Even if you have a fight and behave like a foe,
It’s never too late. Just pick up the phone, say sorry and start over…. NOW !!

Dedicated to all my friends…old and new…to the ones still in my life…just wanna say ‘I love you’ the ones I left far behind…I hope we get a chance to start over. 😊

  1. Lovely post dear, you really classified friends here in the best way. ❀️ I think sometimes, your bestest old friend leaves you and some random person befriends you and never leaves you. 😊🌺

    1. Thank you so much Samreen for liking the poem. You are right…we never know when a stranger walks into our lives at the most unexpected place and becomes a lifelong friend. 😊😊

    1. Haha..true…I definitely thought of us as I wrote of the work friends part…how our bond grew while bickering about ‘you know who’ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


  3. The reciprocity is important in each of these relationships. Sometimes we feel a strong connection to someone but they don’t care as much as we would like them to. They want to let go, so we have to let them.

    1. You are right….until the feeling is mutual…no relationship can sustain…whether friendship or a romantic one…it is a two way street after all…thank for pointing that out πŸ‘πŸ€—

    1. * differences between different friendship types is very accurate. I hate the office ones most, there always seems to be some element of distrust here, and it’s difficult to open up. Social media is mostly virtual anyway. But other than that friends are such a high point of one’s life, one of the strongest bonds.
      And this poem flows so naturally, almost like a story. Very easy and nice to read, very pleasant πŸ‘ŒπŸ™‚

      1. Yes I agree, school and college friends are the most trustworthy and probably why they are the ones going to their grave with some of our deepest secrets…for work friends, it’s difficult to find one who you can trust and open up (beyond the bitching and office gossip), but if you do find such a friend(s) then the workplace definitely becomes something to look forward to…thank you so much for reading and writing….am no expert at poetry…hence the poems are more like prose with some rhymes πŸ˜›πŸ˜›

  5. Your poem resonates with me. Especially in this time of COVID, true friends surface and keep in touch and help us keep afloat as they reach out to stay connected in this sea of isolation. Yes, indeed, God bless our friends!

  6. I’ve definitely been through all of these phases. Your words and photos bring back memories. I’m retired now, so much of this seems far away. But then again, wasn’t it only yesterday?
    Thanks so much for following Oh, the Places We See. It’s great to have you traveling — virtually, of course — with us!

    1. Yes its indeed a pity that we lose contact with friends with whom we had some everlasting memories….it’s a 2 way lasts only if both make equal effort to be there in each others’ livee..otherwise it’s lost..guess some bonds are really not forever….thanks for stopping by ☺️
