 Julias' Poetry from the Heart

Goodbye My Friend

When they told me of the day
You were going away
My stomach turned and my heart stopped,
Tears swelled in my eyes
As pain flowed through my entire body
It's time for him to go
There's nothing to be done,
My friend was leaving me
After only a short while
As I held his warm smooth body
Close to mine
He nestled his head under my chin,
The comfort of his warmth
And unconditional love
Could not stop the pain,
As I handed him over to the stranger
Who stood next to me
I wept
