I found this poem and thought I would share it for anyone who is dealing with a broken friendship. Sometime the hardest thing to do is be the first to forgive or say sorry...

WHAT IF?
© Claire

Friends tell you their secrets
Friends are meant to share
Friends are meant to cheer you up,
What happens when they’re not there?

Is it hard when you don’t have
Someone to lean upon?
When you need a friend to care,
but they, your friends, have gone?

What if you were split
Up from your best friend?
Do you think you’d care
If your friendship ends?

Would you slowly drift apart,
Go in separate ways?
Or would you both grow closer
Grow closer day by day?

What if your friends started
Saying things behind your back?
Would you stand and face them,
Or would your courage lack?

Perhaps it would be safer
To let your friendships mend,
Push these thoughts behind you,
And make the questions end.

And to think you almost left Offbeat for good! Topix is a better place because you are here.

It's Saturday, my b/f is away and I have all the time in the world to post my a$$ off, but I think I posted 4 times today. Almost every thread I frequent has the same thing on it...hatred. From both sides.

I'm really sick of all this. I like ALL OF YOU GUYS! Stop it already. Look at the poem CK has posted. If you can't get along, fine. Just stop the bickering!

You guys are SERIOUSLY hurting my post count (LOL).

Friends...

How's the weather

How are the kids

Oh my goodness

The things that

They did
:o)
Hows your puppy

Hows your cat

Oh No you did not

Buy a rat

Work was so boring

Not at all fun

I could not wait

To cut a run

The hubbys

Complaining

About something I did

Sometimes that man

Acts just like

A big little kid

My car wouldn't start

And I have no clue

It's an old clunker

It's time

For something new

I'm sorry you feel bad
:o(

Glad it isn't me
;o)

I want my flu season

To remain flu free

I'm sorry that

You lost someone

So dear

To your heart

Time heals all wounds

Todays a good start

You need a hug

This will just

Have to do

A ((((((BIGOL'HUGSATCHA))))))

The least I can do

All of these moments

Little moments

You share

With a friend

It's like a death

In the family

When A Dear Friendship

Ends..

Hi Col, well I have come to really like so many here and seeing everything that has happened I thought maybe there was a way to fix it. I know this might not be fixable because so much has happened. That is why I like the poem and the last few lines especially. But I also realize when you are not directly involved it is easier to think all can be forgiven.

Hope you are doing well and your day was a great one.:)smiles

My day was a great one, I got alot done, but alot more to do tomorrow. I'm going through alot of stuff I haven't used in years, but you know, you just want to hang on to certain things...things that have meaning. Nostalgia...hard to get rid of.

Friend... I think the term gets used too loosely.

"My Friends"

I'm not the type
to throw that word
around like it has
little meaning- no.
If I call you a friend
then you truly are
and you always
will be- yes.
Unconditional,
life-long, through
thick and then,
from beginning to end,
from the tips of my toes
to the top of my head,
with every ounce
of my being
I will love you,
because...
you ARE my friend.

"Moments'

---

And ... then a new day dawned, The Sun

swept over the hills, silentl creeping..

gently

seeping...

thru'.. October silver mists;

Frail rays fanning out ..

spreading yellow light 'cross

coloured morning hills,



glitter dewdrops

bejewel ...
the fragile spiders web..

And ..all is quiet..
In it's light

an ease..in it's peace..

It is awesome ..
'Because it's Autumn..

No Bell can be unrung........
@}-'--,---

Ethics of the Fathers: Chapter One
1. Moses received the Torah from Sinai and gave it over to Joshua. Joshua gave it over to the Elders, the Elders to the Prophets, and the Prophets gave it over to the Men of the Great Assembly. They [the Men of the Great Assembly] would always say these three things: Be cautious in judgement. Establish many pupils. And make a safety fence around the Torah.

2. Shimon the Righteous was among the last surviving members of the Great assembly. He would say: The world stands on three things: Torah, the service of G-d, and deeds of kindness.

3. Antignos of Socho received the tradition from Shimon the Righteous. He would say: Do not be as slaves, who serve their master for the sake of reward. Rather, be as slaves who serve their master not for the sake of reward. And the fear of Heaven should be upon you.

4. Yossei the son of Yoezer of Tzreidah, and Yossei the son of Yochanan of Jerusalem, received the tradition from them. Yossei the son of Yoezer of Tzreidah would say: Let your home be a meeting place for the wise; dust yourself in the soil of their feet, and drink thirstily of their words.

5. Yossei the son of Yochanan of Jerusalem would say: Let your home be wide open, and let the poor be members of your household. And do not engage in excessive conversation with a woman. This is said even regarding one's own wife--how much more so regarding the wife of another. Hence, the sages said: One who excessively converses with a woman causes evil to himself, neglects the study of Torah, and, in the end, inherits purgatory.

6. Joshua the son of Perachia and Nitai the Arbelite received from them. Joshua the son of Perachia would say: Assume for yourself a master, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every man to the side of merit.

7. Nitai the Arbelite would say: Distance yourself from a bad neighbor, do not cleave to a wicked person, and do not abandon belief in retribution.

8. Judah the son of Tabbai and Shimon the son of Shotach received from them. Judah the son of Tabbai would say: When sitting in judgement, do not act as a counselor-at-law. When the litigants stand before you, consider them both guilty; and when they leave your courtroom, having accepted the judgement, regard them as equally righteous.

9. Shimon the son of Shotach would say: Increasingly cross-examine the witnesses. Be careful with your words, lest they learn from them how to lie.

10. Shmaayah and Avtalyon received from them. Shmaayah would say: Love work, loath mastery over others, and avoid intimacy with the government.

11. Avtalyon would say: Scholars, be careful with your words. For you may be exiled to a place inhabited by evil elements [who will distort your words to suit their negative purposes]. The disciples who come after you will then drink of these evil waters and be destroyed, and the Name of Heaven will be desecrated.

12. Hillel and Shammai received from them. Hillel would say: Be of the disciples of Aaron--a lover of peace, a pursuer of peace, one who loves the creatures and draws them close to Torah.

13. He would also say: One who advances his name, destroys his name. One who does not increase, diminishes. One who does not learn is deserving of death. And one who make personal use of the crown of Torah shall perish.

14. He would also say: If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?

15. Shammai would say: Make your Torah study a permanent fixture of your life. Say little and do much. And receive every man with a pleasant countenance.

16. Rabban Gamliel would say: Assume for yourself a master; stay away from doubt; and do not accustom yourself to tithe by estimation.

17. His son, Shimon, would say: All my life I have been raised among the wise, and I have found nothing better for the body than silence. The essential thing is not study, but deed. And one who speaks excessively brings on sin.

18. Rabbi Shimon the son of Gamliel would say: By three things is the world sustained: law, truth and peace. As is stated (Zachariah 8:16), "Truth, and a judgement of peace, you should administer at your [city] gates.''

I thinks maybe those old guys had a clue...

Misunderstanding

Misunderstandings hurt
They shouldn't be the end
You went away mad at what?
I thought we were friends

Is it something else?
Is it someone else?
What is wrong?
What did I do?
All I did was defend you!

I hate the silence
It does us no good
Come and talk with me
Like a good friend should

It can't end like this
We only just started
Don't let a misunderstanding
Leave us broken hearted!

WHAT IF?
© Claire

Friends tell you their secrets
Friends are meant to share
Friends are meant to cheer you up,
What happens when theyÂ’re not there?

Is it hard when you donÂ’t have
Someone to lean upon?
When you need a friend to care,
but they, your friends, have gone?

What if you were split
Up from your best friend?
Do you think youÂ’d care
If your friendship ends?

Would you slowly drift apart,
Go in separate ways?
Or would you both grow closer
Grow closer day by day?

What if your friends started
Saying things behind your back?
Would you stand and face them,
Or would your courage lack?

Perhaps it would be safer
To let your friendships mend,
Push these thoughts behind you,
And make the questions end.
Nice Poem. TY for sharing...
