Too Many Of My Friends Are Gone


Too many of my friends are gone-
Many have died
Others have left this world while in this world-
What joy is there in life when one no longer has friends to talk to?

It is so sad
Two of the most optimistic people I have ever known
Far more optimistic than me
Are no longer here
Life is so much less interesting and less hopeful without them-

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
