There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

How did you meet your oldest friend?

Friends are very important to us. Some we have known for years, and others a shorter time, but that doesn't make them any less important.

It got me thinking.. how did you meet your oldest friend? By oldest, I don't mean the one with the highest age.. I mean the one who you have known the longest.

For me, I met them at school as they were in the same classes as me when we first started at the school. I have spoken to them ever since, and I am happy to class them as my best friend now!

What about you?

    I am still in contact with some of my oldest friends (school friends) but I don't think they are close friends any more. We have grown so far apart and have very little in common.

    It is a shame when that happens. I think that when we are children we have a lot of friends, and by the time we are adults we just have a few close friends - but those friends are worth a lot!
