Life is a Rock Opera Pt6

Well this is the last part of my first collection of poems. About a group of boys who through luck, fate, karma or whatever it is you believe in are, nearly 40 years later, still the best of friends.

I thank each of them for their belief in me telling this story and the support they’ve shown in the comments they’ve giving.

Love you Guys.

Enjoy!

Who’d have guessed; well here’s to the next…

Friends

So where did I leave this tale

Not to dwell to long on the past

Life was getting in their way

Loyalties began to fray

Their time together… Going; Going: Gone

 

But time does seem to mend all wounds

 

A chance reunion, fate dropped the ball

Thinking she’d heard the fat lady sing

Turned her back for a moment

Just enough for Luck to step in

And give them a chance reunion

 

That was enough

 

It started off small

After all, fate had split them apart

Back together, slow and steady

After such long independent adventures

Were they ready? Oh Yeah!

 

Them Good Ole Boys!

 

It was like stepping back through all those years

After all, their memories were that old

This time though with a little self control and maturity

Just a little

They got lost in reminisce; the place they came from

 

They were back

 

Party of four from way back then

Laughing, Crying, Loving, Hating

Larger than life

Travelling down times avenue

And back again

 

Young adolescents to older, wiser… adolescence

 

The Charmer, The Dreamer, The American, The Rebel

Regrets laid waste, friendship refreshed

Still strong, moving on

Teaching each other the ways of their new lives

All the while honouring their past

 

A newly found mutual respect

 

In the beginning

They came together with no commitment

Never considering a lifelong agreement

Now reunited

They don’t live in each other’s pockets

They enjoy quality time when they’re together

 

Living in the moment

 

That’s what it’s about

Forgive and forget, trust not doubt

Life’s simplicities

A movie, a curry, a pint, a game of pool

That’s what keeps them the best of friends

 

A Toast: To Marcus, Jasper, Larry and Dan

 

So that’s the end of my story but theirs will carry on

Lifelong friends, Brotherly love, a unique phenomenon

But one last sentiment, before I refrain

Here’s to their Rock Opera… Long may it reign!
