Myrna's Adventure

Chapters:   « Previous 1 ... 5 6 7

A New Life

By the time that the keeper discovered Myrna’s absence, she was far away, and doing what snakes do best—hiding. Although they searched and searched, Myrna was never found. The going was tough at first, and Myrna complained many times. When she finally could survive on her own, she realized that even though it was tough to choose at the time, she wouldn’t trade anything for her life the way it was now.
Life grew easier for Myrna and she had many friends in the forest. When Erwin died, she lived on, never forgetting her first friend. In her old age, Myrna took to composing poetry. Realizing how special her friend Erwin really was, she wrote this poem in memory of him:
Friendship is spending time together
Talking far into the night
Wishing for each other
Making up after a fight

Friendship is looking at each other
And knowing both your thoughts
Having the courage to be there
When everyone else is not

Friendship is tears
Mixed with laughter, fear, and regret
Put together, making memories
That you never will forget

Friendship never has to end,
But friendships always do
When time and space and distance
Come between me and you

We sit around and think way back
To the way that it had been
It was something so very priceless
And we wish we’d known it then
