  "A poem to you "

My friend, the best you'd say
But Your life was taken away
This drug it always kills
Cold, slow and painful

I love you ,  my best friend
You told not of your addiction
Nothing I could do
It would take your life
Before my eyes

I wept at your funeral
Tears flowed down my face
As I watched you my friend
Lowered to your resting place

You now I believe
Look out for me
One wish if I could have
Id go back and say goodbye
Not to remember you in this mind
Of death on the floor
Beneath me

Eight long years have passed
Tough times without you there
Memories of happy times we shared
Not a day I dont think of you

Today I wept again
As I sat next to you
Telling You of my life
And how much I miss you

This is so sad, Whiskey. Such a shame. Writing, I think, is the best way to deal with your grief. Too bad we can't turn back time, but, of course, we can't.

After reading the last poem you wrote about your friend that passed away, I wondered at the reason, and now that I know, my heart goes out to you more deeply than ever..HUGS!

Very sad...time heals all wounds, although slower at times than others.

I don't think 'all' is true Hoot.  I think it's more true that we learn to incorporate it in our DNA and devolop the strength to carry it.

Whiskey -- you are a mellow brew; barrell aged with oak flavour...and a vibrant spirit... huggsz

Whiskey... You and I have one thing in common, we lost a best friend the same way. Hoot is right, time is a wonderful healer, just slower at certain things. ((((HUGS))))
Wonderful poem.
