For My Friend

For My Friend


Words are lost from songbirds
When he speaks of his own wisdom
A chalice placed that crucified
His prison a mental kingdom
Eyes that look eyes that see
The ever changing symmetry
Of a world in repentance
Or a place I long to be.




Author's Notes:
A friend of mine died through alchohol abuse.

So sad my friend.

It is doubly so in lieu of his disease. Sorry for your loss.

A whole life gone. This was very heartfelt, and I am sorry for your loss. Nothing will ease the pain, but remember the man who was your will help you some.

Sorry for your loss John. It is so sad when a loved one dies but it's a sadder day when they could have stayed longer. This touches my heart deeply for I am no stranger to addiction.

This is so sad...  I am so sorry for your loss.  Losing a friend is devastating, especially if it was in such an unnecessary way. 
Great write.
