On The Death Of A Friend This Afternoon
Sat, 05 Jun 2021
Last night the candle swayed and danced.
I gazed enraptured and entranced.
It filled the room with joy and hope,
And cast away the dark.
The candle will stay cold tonight.
I'll sit without its comforting light.
But memories will shine and play.
Companions in the dark.
So lead the way, go make new friends.
The wounds of those you've left may mend.
But smile as you put down your glass.
And never fear the dark.
