Sadness looms, ever deadening

Like spilt blood, body reddening

These feelings inside of us

Covering, layering like dust

A moment gone, come again

Will be welcomed like an old friend

Tears shed for such a loss

Our hearts will accept the cost

Fear and aguish

Our minds diminish

'We' are finished

But 'I' begin

I will mourn the loss of my friend

Many joyful times for me

Now only faded memories

Years lost but never forgotten

Time I will never have again

As warm, as inviting as a scent

One which I hold with no regret

And so, the time will come, and then

I will go to meet my friend

One last time, 'our' memory

Will live again

We'll be friends for Eternity
