I Will Vist My Friend

Life is too busy, life is too fast
Life isn’t what it was in the past
I want to visit or call and say hi
I never actually do it, but I really do try

The weeks flash on by, they turn into years
The demands of living, the unreasonable fears
I still think of you and I will visit you soon
Our friendship revived, our friendship resumed

The workload increases, my energy is sapped
My home life in turmoil, I’m hopelessly trapped
I think of you often, at least I will write
I’ll explain my absence; I’ll tell you my plight

This morning I read with utter desolation
There in the obituary is the affirmation
My good friend is dead; all I can do is weep
I promised to visit my guilt is so deep

I held your love in the palm of my hand
And let it vanish like prints in the sand
It’s too late to call to tell you my friend
How I miss you already and shall till my end.

Wonderful writing. One of the best that I have read. Your story is all too true.
"I held your love in the palm of my hand And let it vanish like prints in the sand", exquisite phrases...!!! And we're all so guilty of this sad neglect of friendship... I agree with Hedi, this is one of the best poems I have read on this site...
