Friendship and Love Way Up Above

Jane Austen wrote Love and Friendship

Long before the invention of television,

And sitcoms openly display

situational comedy

Oftentimes with various forms of irony,

and the enduring legacy

of the Friends TV show

encouraged a wide audience

to value quality friendships and relationships

that make companionship

both essential and fundamental

while acknowledging how human interactions

are sometimes even psychological,

and even as friends fade

as time passes by,

treasure precious memories

while looking up towards the sky,

and then at least try

to remind close friends

that they really do matter

By making amends
