• Hearts' Mending (4)

    But graduation seemed a new beginning:

    A different major to enrich my mind,

    Fresh challenges and contests for the winning,

    A one-bedroom apartment (hard to find).


    Ah! Living on my own, my shy moon waxed,

    It hasn't been so easy, shifting from

    Our college days, our ev'ry hour together,

    And sharing all our thoughts; to then become

    A lone alumnus, sister without brother


    Like Wordsworth, stranded in a city German,

    I was adrift, in hostile land, alone.

    There's no one else who's helped me know my self,

    Whenever we're together, it's the same:

    It seems no time has passed. Our friends…

  • A Friend Date

    I'm going to meet my friend tonight

    When we hold hands, my heart's so light

    I'll kiss his face and hug him tight--

    My pulses race just thinking of our date.

  • Out Together

    I don't much care just what we do,

    So long as Anna's tight with Roo;

    I'm always sure to love the view

    Our friendship's strong, and we are going out!

    We've chatted long and learned the way

    To interact, share thoughts, and say

    The words the other needs…
