I'll go along with that any time! Friendship often happens with something unpredictable and unexpected, but ever welcome in my book! One never knows who might be the one who touches your 'soul or being' with just one word a look or a handshake. Even a glancing look can trigger a friendship on occasion. Today it seems not so often as everyone concentrates on their Mobile, with little time to "look" at what goes on around them! Their loss as they will discover later, when a friend is needed and they find they've lost the ability to connect with others, without some technological device! Rapport is essential but it can happen when least expected. Age matters not. I have 'friends; of all ages, though the numbers of 'older friends; has diminished greatly. May I add yourself to my list? for I fancy their is evidence of a rapport between us, that might well flourish into a friendship! Fond regards Rhymer aka Denis.

What a very lovely sentiment--I have no doubt that you can have all the friends that you might desire with such an inviting and positive attitude. Your poetry is so endearing that I feel you are my friend whenever I read it--and your older poems are as excellent as today's

All the Best!
your friend
Phil

Awe, Jay. I can imagine that you must miss them a lot. I remember my dear aunt saying to me that the hardest part of getting old was all the ones dear to her passing away. She was 95 when she said that. I loved your poem and identified with it. UllA:))

At least you have some awareness of them, put lacking myself for years any communication with them, knowing not if they are alive or dead. Friends are hard to find even past associates. All views are stated in my set opinion.

Yes Jay, how right you are that it is sad when our friends die. I very much like your perfectly metred and rhymed poem which very clearly states a recognition of life and its bounty and your ask equally clear.

Terrific poem my friend and many thanks to you for sharing. :)

I love this poem. The rhyme is perfect and I had such an uplifting feeling reading it. You write like a seasoned poet, and maybe you are, and I hope to see more of what you write. Good luck

You've penned a lovely poignant poem here, pinpointing one of the saddest elements of growing older and outliving our fiends, some lifelong friends. Your second verse especially moved me. Younger people cannot imagine these feelings. We need friendships.
