Seeing A Friend Off


I sat beside him
-a friend dying.
I held his hand
but it seemed
he was unaware
of who his
last Earthly
contact was.

In a hospital bed
busy staff on
other tasks.
No blame on
them.Only
I could see
him off-
Where?

    It is a true friend that stays til the end....I hope you find comfort knowing you gave him a final farewell. Your poem speaks softly, and sweetly to my soul. Scripted with such truth, it stirs in my heart. PEACE (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
