Sonnet: A Lost Friendship
- by Dr John Celes 17You were my friend then: now almost stranger!
Our friendship appeared once very glorious;
What happened meantime, gives me great anger;
Our friendship no longer remains serious.
Fool you were, to be misled by others,
Who drove a giant wedge 'midst our friendship;
Cut off is our friendship, which me bothers;
A nadir has come in our relationship.
What years of intimacy have been lost?
You've been foolish, very much on your part;
Our friendship today is just but a ghost;
Won't your eyes see the true love in my heart?
Dear friend however, you can't be my foe;
I hope that our friendship, blossoms once more!
- by Dr John Celes 12Love is not of minds alone;
Love is not of hearts that yearn;
Love is not of bodies entwined;
Love is more than the finest wine!
Love is not just when eyes see;
Love is not just when ears hear;
Love is not all sensory;
Love is more than what you dream!
Love is not of earthly mould;
Love is not human-designed;
Love is not ephemeral;
Love is more – predestined!
Love is not of sex, age, race;
Love is not for earth's life-span;
Love is not togetherness;
Love is more- Eternity!
