An old friend
Gets in touch
Out of the blue

You set a date
And get together

Warm hugs and greetings
Conversation flows
Time melts away

You catch up
So easily

Nurture and cherish it
Make your heart happy

    Diane, friendships are so important! They feed our soul! And like you said, they make “time melt away.”

    This is a great reminder to take some time for self-care and reconnect with old friends who ‘make your heart happy’. I’m going to take reading your post as a sign to reconnect with just one friend today!

  3. I love that this is a poem that sends a message. Often students don’t see that a poem can be a story, an opinion, nonfiction or even instructional. Yours is a bit of everything. I look forward to sharing it with students. Also was a good reminder for me!

    Ho true. We have recently reconnected with friends I went to college with and our friendship just picked up where we left off.

    So true: “Conversation flows / Time melts away.” There are no gaps in the friendship of true friends.
