I really liked this, until the last line...that such comfort would be false, especially for a man whose nature it is not to be so vulnerable. I have a friend, whom I was always close to but who became infinitely closer after I held him weeping in my arms at another friends' funeral. There is something about the bond that experience created that is very unique and special. Without the last line this poem could have been speaking of that.
