Juju...I wrote this a while back.  Will it still work for your challenge?

~*~

Gloria

you thought
G-L-O-R-I-A was
created
just so you could dance
dance you did

all 5-2 and eyes of blue
of you

your shy pulled my shy
like magnets we
were inseparable, the
late 60’s belonging
to our memories

I miss you!

I was your lean and lanky
to your petite and pretty…

Your father took you on
his transfer, even after
pleas to please let you stay
three years
the longest time ever in
one place, brat that
you were, the AF
claimed him, but
O to finish high school
with friends of the girl
who had the Sandy/Sammy
eyes of blue, your shy

shimmered away in laughter
at my wry comments
that only you understood
making me
feel even that much taller
so I never wore heels
around your wearing heels
because we really belonged on
the same level

you and I…

we were best friends
and still would be…

I sent a pink rose bush to your mother
as anger at your father’s
decision didn’t let me do
anything but acknowledge
“Mrs. & Family…” but I really
knew her better than him
and was ashamed after
at my disrespect

your father needed
his family…I understood why he
wouldn’t allow mine to
guardian you to finish school…
he had served his time in
‘Nam and needed to hug all
tight…

sometimes survivors do that…

I sent a living reminder of
you after we had separated,  
school behind us, some college behind
us, me a newlywed, alone
in the house when your mother
called

“because you were her best
friend,”

in short simple words
as was her Appalachian
background she outlined
your having gone to church
to share your love of
God
to the students, she was so
proud of this act, that
you were teaching
others to follow in
His footsteps

part of you, oh so part of you…

how the semi came out in
front of you,

how she missed you.

She just wanted me to know.

I hung up, and screamed
why! why!

immediately coming to
mind only the good die young
but you were past young, oh
God! You were only 21….

I sent a living pink rose bush to
commemorate your memory
and hoped your Dad, or one
of your five brothers
would plant it

they did.

The following year your mother
called, “you were her best friend,”

and said that year
the rose bush bloomed beautiful…

pink, and red, roses.

I always enjoyed red roses.

I still miss you.

I plant
pink, and red roses.

So sad. Thanks for the poem. I song on Fuse reminded me of old times with a friend, so that's what sparked this. Thank you. your poem was beautiful.  It's amazing how one person can change you so much.


Love,

i wrote this one a while ago...

The Next Step
  -To Kieran, for graduation.


Into the unknown the journey begins
Blackness on all sides, confusion-
Which way does the wind blow,
I’ll follow it.  I am, I am, I am
That child lost without his mothers
Hand to guide him through the dark
Night.  Remember all the nights
We lost our way only to be found
By the sun as it peeked across the
Horizon.  Remember that one night
Where you found me.  Bleeding on
The bathroom floor, wanting to be
Lost forever.  But you found me.
You made sure I would never be
Lost again.  And so we close this chapter-
And I can’t help but think our story ends here.

And I can’t help it, but I know, our story ends here.

here ya go - my chocolate lab
(a triolet from archives)

Best friend asleep beneath a stone
Velvet coat my finger trace
Darkness falls, I am alone
Best friend asleep beneath a stone
Hazel eyes and stoic bone
Sweet breath caress upon my face  
Best friend asleep beneath a stone
Velvet coat my finger trace

My Special Friend

You've been gone eleven years
So much has passed since then
But still the memories are strong
Of you and I back when

Our friendship was a special thing
It haunts me to this day
Though time has passed, the love remains
Since you went away

I hold your memories, oh, so close
Here inside my heart
And wonder why you feel so near
When we're so far apart

A boy, a girl, they can't be friends
Or so some people say
But I know their wrong, 'cause I lost my friend
The day you went away
