Ode To A Dear Friend

I see you lying there too still
Had no idea you were so ill
I wouldn't hear
When they said the end was near

There were too many games to play
Far too many words to say
Too many messages to delete
Oh, no everything was not yet complete

The time we shared was much too brief
I now hold in my heart all that miserable grief........
Simply stated, an after thought
I admire the way you bravely fought

You rest peacefully and quietly now
For I don't know but somehow
I believe I will see you in the end
You have been a dear friend

You were only here to stay
Until you were called away
There is no other
Like you my dear beloved brother

2007 Janet Irene Griffin

*This poem is a special tribute to my brother whose sudden passing was
October 18, 2006. I wrote this poem as an expression of my deep loss.
