A Friendship Reflected

All the lights we can not see,

All the music we can not hear,

All the memories we can not remember

Are the shadows of a life unpursued.

Are ripples in a pond with no reflection.

 

Two kind souls forged together by destiny

Two people grounded by life unstill

Two friends preparing for the future unknown

Is a bond true?

Is this a friendship?

 

Time unveils devilish deeds

Time decides the lives we lead

Time does not know our souls

Why are our paths controlled?

Why are we together?

 

Can’t comprehend each grain of sand

Can’t create a beach of man

Can’t control everyone’s plans

What is in the other’s eyes?  

What is truly seen?

 

I choose to live a life unknown

I choose my friends of different tone

I choose to act like stone

How do friends act alone?

How are we alone?

 

My wish was for a friend of care

My wish was for a bond so fair

My wish was for happiness

Who are friends alone?

Who is my reflection?

 

All the lights we can not see,

All the music we can not hear,

All the memories we can not remember

Are the shadows of a life unpursued.

Are ripples in a pond with no reflection.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world

Thanks so much! Being my first poem, I am going to continue to try and enhance each repetition's meaning (going to try to follow Ezra Pound's rules of poetry).

If you guys want to read my newly released poem it is called Reflections from Inside. It is TRENDING YES! This poem and my new one show my journey. I am not going to tell you how or which elements because that would ruin all fun, but they are connected! Thanks for reading and commenting!
