To a friend far away | Hello I'm Clo

To a friend far away | Hello I'm Clo

Hello! I'm Clo and with my current flu and cold I'm finding it rather difficult to sleep. At 2 this morning I had to put pen to paper and let some feelings out. This is a letter / poem structure of words that came flooding out along with tears.

At this age lots of friendships change due to changing circumstances that are simply out of your hands. This is one of those instances.


It's two in the morning and I just wish I could let you know that I'm thinking of you. 

I don't know where you are or what you're doing or even if you're ok.

I'm trying to find you, to run into your arms give you a big hug and tell
You it'll all be ok. 

You fill my mind constantly when I draw a blank. You're the first thing I think of in the morning and last thing as I turn out the light. 

I wonder how our lives came to this. I think of the paths we both chose and what lies ahead of us both in the future.

You'll do well. With your infectious personality and wide grin - who could resist
You're the ladies man I've never been interested in - I'm the pretty blonde you'd never look at twice. 

Friendship from children into adults is a funny little journey, as we both know now. Acquaintances come and go, allies disappear but our friendship stands strong. We don't need to hold each other's hands every day. But we're there in times of turmoil, times of crisis and when we're sad, lost and confused

I find it hard that now we both have no freedom for our friendship to flourish, between walls we lie. 

I can't sleep in fear that you're hurting, something your delicate little soul does not deserve. 

I think of your brother, I think of our third group member, the one that turned out just fine.

Although I'm sad and feeling down I must look for the positives. Every cloud has a silver lining. Everything happens for a reason.  I hope one day when we're old and grey we look back on these months as a blip, a glitch in the matrix, a learning curve. 

I hope to see you soon to give you that cuddle, to show you're worthy of love and that in my eyes; you'll never change from that happy go lucky character you've always been


Sometimes it's just great to get feelings out of your head. I always feel much better when I can make sense of everything that's going on.

Even if you think you can't write well or compile your feelings, just, try. - No one expects a poet Laurette from your first try.

Lot's of love,

Clo : -)
