Flashback 9-11-1984

I came across one of my first journal/poetry books that I kept when I was much younger….obviously not yesterday….and thought I would share the first one I came to…I am still laughing but at least I was writing albeit not very good…I hope you enjoy.

Friend
Whenever you need me
you’ll know where I’ll be-
If you have trouble
you’ll always have me-
I’ll give you my friendship
I’ll owe you my life
…..thank you for being my friend.
Whenever you want me
I’ll always be there
I’ll show how I love you
I’ll smile and care-
I really do need you
for me, you’ll be there
…..thank you for being my friend.

Do you still have your first pieces you wrote? How do you feel about them now? I have kept them, at times wanting to burn them, but ultimately they reside in a dusty place till brought out to the light to bring a smile and a thought of ‘Oh my God, did I write that drivel?” just kidding….maybe…

  1. I think it’s lovely – so much heart.

    I remember giving some of my teenage pieces a Viking funeral, I think I liked the drama of the gesture πŸ˜€

  2. I liked that. Great on a card. My first poem? written almost 50 years ago: “Eyes like a hawk, ears like a fox, legs like a deer to run through the year.” hahahah

  3. Yes I have one piece, approximately from that year. The only one I kept from that time. Maybe I’ll post it today; you inspired me to do it. Lovely, Kim. You always were a beautiful friend. πŸ™‚
