A Beautiful Poem Brings Back Sweet Memories

It is typical of me reading again some of the texts and notes used during my tertiary education.  I was going through my usual routine of arranging my books, magazines and files when I came across this beautiful poem in one of my old files. That was when I was a student years back. I forgot where I got it but I did mention, "I don't write this poem and I don't know who did. But I like it, as it shows how I feel towards friends."

I am against plagiarism and I made it clear at the side bar by saying "Plagiarism Is Unethical." Whoever wrote this poem and if it happens you read this, please let me know so that I can acknowledge and credit it or if you wish it be removed, I will immediately do so.

This poem has been in my file for so many years and I like every line which is so meaningful. Today, I am sharing it with all of you with credit to the unknown author.

If I could catch a rainbow,
I would do it just for you,
And share with you its beauty,
On the days you are feeling blue.

If I could build a mountain,
You could call your very own,
A place to find serenity,
A place to be alone.

If I could take your troubles,
I would toss them in the sea,
But all these things I am finding,
Are impossible for me.

I cannot find a mountain,
Or catch a rainbow fair,
But let me say what I know best,
A friend that's always there.

Isn't it beautiful? I really love this poem because it makes me feel friends are so close to my heart. Wherever you are my friends, I love you all for being my friends! *smile*
