 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

It’s been forty years
since you passed away
For forty years,
 I’ve remembered this day
You were my best friend,
 the best I had…
I still don’t understand
how things went so bad?
You fell a short distance
that broke all our hearts
Your life was forfeit,
 Our friendship now past.
Life has gone on since
Sometimes I wish you could see
The beauty I’ve witnessed
For both you and for me…
But I’m glad you missed out on
The wars and the pain
As man conquers everything
But only few gain.
I don’t believe in Heaven
So I doubt that we’ll meet
Just know that I loved you
A friendship complete.
