Taken away by the illness within
wish I had another moment.
Having a hard time believing you have passed;
how do I accept the loss of my friend?

I will miss the loud knocking on my front door
when you would stop by on the slightest whim.
You whirled me away like a hurricane;
with only a moment's notice, our wanderings began.

Whether we hopped into your car to do some errands
or spend the day with friends,
a day with you was quite the adventure;
of which I dearly miss.

I still remember when we first met;
two hours after midnight sitting on my porch.
You threw a rock to scare a skunk
I told you to stop; he was doing no harm.

As you walked toward me, I felt intimidated;
your stature could match any man.
The concern I felt was for naught;
for you had a pleasant disposition.

It was wrong you did admit
and promised you would never throw another.
You kept that promise you made to me;
as well the ones thereafter.

Not for a moment did I think we would become friends;
nothing in common there was between us.
Unaware that a friendship was forming;
from that fateful night, you followed a skunk.

Sums up your poetry and your homage to your friend with dignity, fondness and love.

'...a friend indeed'.


Just out looking for the real me...

You reminded me of my friend I lost decades ago. I thank you so much for the memory. Your words were like a fresh washed face and bare feet. That's a compliment I hope that makes sense. You are fresh, open, sweet and
authentic. Write on! ~L

Dear Owly One,

My heart reaches out to hug your heart. Again, I am moved by your sensitivity and your ability to move me so deeply. You will remain in my thoughts today.

With love ~ Ali
