My friend, one of the dearest
T’was never meant to be for us
But I know you adored me
Even dared to protect me
That you told me years later
You followed me home after school
Making sure I stayed safe under your watchful pool!
And didn’t you write my name on your shoes,
Splattered for all to see…it was a big blush for me!
Utterly kind-hearted, honest and genuine
Years passed us by but fate did intervene
We did speak years after, a meet was not in our ‘has-beens’
For you left earth onto another heavenly scene!
Our talks gathered a lot of memories and momentum
Gave me the feeling of your unrest and dark guilt hidden
Hope you found your light, your time here though a given!
You asked me then to write about us
A fictitious story of love which could have been
But my dearest YOU were the writer, you wrote so well,
A talent you showed me yet from others you kept superbly hidden!
We will meet again, one day I promise
Until then, I share this poem for you…from me
A few words to line the pages of my next book
Out of gratitude, love, a priceless gift to a dear friend,
knowing no earthly fee!
