Two Friends

Two Friends short poem

Photo by 76Winger

I feel like a teardop rolling down a face
I can feel the shape of the cheek I trace
I’m just salty water hanging it’s true
But so much pain I have go through

The pain of a child with a skinned knee
The pain of a woman losing all she needs
There’s so much pain as she tries to let go
But she never truly will you know

Her heart will always bear the loss
In tears and pain she’ll pay the cost
But I’ll be here just to see her through
So many tears she will cry its so true

The man losing the woman he calls wife
The one he meant to be with all his life
The reason does not matter not important why
He’ll hang his head as a million tears he cries

The child finding out daddy is gone
The war took him he will never be home
The pain he feels will rip him in two
But I’ll be there to help him through

There are many reasons people cry you know
So many things make the tear drops flow
But I’m the best friend they have then
I’ll be with them till the pain ends

They turn to me when no one’s there
They cry to me that it is so unfair
She says I miss him so very much
Will I always long for his touch

She has gone I’m here so all alone
I wait but she’s never coming home
She gives her love to someone new
It’s killing me to lose her it’s true

Daddy is gone and now I’m always sad
Mommy is crying and it’s so bad
She’ll hold her dolly and cry it’s true
Her tears will be there to get her through

Yes I’m just a teardrop on someones face
And I alone never the pain will erase
But combined with my friend time
We will ease the hurt that’s in your mind

Mid this commemoration, Of annihilation Of inclinations And pursuits, My soul revels In these fervent goodbyes. The stiff and the spiritless, Scream my name. They exult and glorify This celebration. Agony, Candid in it’s certainty, Leaves always, To re appear

They minded their conversation, The ants that came marching in. Extra sugar. A little less cream. The foam from their latte circled their mouths, Disfigured steam still rising from their small cups. A light comfort found after a hard day’s
