First Line/Last Line Poem – Know This, Friend

This poem was originally written for a Creative Writing class in December 2010.

This one I think was written for my friend who was leaving for Korea for six months.

Know This, Friend

Before you go
Know that I’ll miss you
Know that I love you, my friend
Know that I’ll always be there

Before you go
Know that I’ll be here
Know that I’ll listen
Know that no matter what, I care

Before you go
Know that I’ll go too
Know that I’ll leave someday
Know that I’ll be out there somewhere

And after you go
Know that you can come back
For a day, an hour, or just words on the phone
Know that your friend is always there.
