This poem is about a dear friend whom I met by pure chance. I have often wondered what would have been if our lives had taken different paths.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Love and Friendship Poems

How Was Your Day?
We are friends from far away.
When we talk we always have something to say.
Our lives so different yet the same.
Every night we play the game.
We talk of families and about our day.
I always wonder if there's more to say.
Could it have been different for you and I?
Or was fate decided before we could have tried?
For now we play our parts, that's all that's left;
Never knowing if our hearts would have met.
Two people from far away, always asking, "How was your day?".

    Yes this is so true about me and a very close Friend, who I speak to everynight. That is what we always say at first, word for word. Thank you so much for it. I did send it to my Friend, who agree's whole Heartedly, that it is true.

    The words touched me so much as it was as if I was reading the conversation I have every night with someone I love very much yet he doesn't know how I truly feel. It's a lovely poem.

    I really liked your poem. It touched me. This is a similar situation for me, except that its my boyfriend's brother. I've been with my boyfriend for 4 years and we plan to marry, but we're in a long distance relationship right now. And, I've known him and his brother for 10 years. I'd never talked to his brother because he was much younger. But now, he is 20 and I am 24. And by chance, we ended up on a group vacation where my boyfriend couldn't make it. We clicked like we'd known each other for 50 years. We were best friends instantly. And we instantly loved each other. We still don't know what to do. And the weirdest thing of all is that my boyfriend has always been weird about me talking to his brother. He told me once, "Don't ever talk to my brother, he's the only one I could ever lose you to. "

    This poem parallels a relationship I had with a travelling co-worker I had the privelidge of working with for 17 weeks, we are both married but there was something very special between us. So special, I've been questioning my marriage ever since.
