Remembering My Friend

I lost a dear friend today.
One whom traveled
all the roads of life
with me: One
who never argued,
complained, just silently
stayed with me
when I waded in swamp water
to my hips; Went
to church, bars, worked in my yard,
cut trees, cut grass when it
was wet with rain or dew,
and was there, close by,
when I got married,
and was always there
through hard times,
good times,
the times when I needed
to be alone, but
know there was always
a friend close by
that would be with me
no matter
what far-flung whim
I needed to follow.
and the death
of the sole
of my favorite boots
will affect me

forever.

It is true, then... All good things come to an end.

Well written and thoroughly enjoyed.
