A Friend Lost

Sweet friend
I have lost you
I am here now
Memories remain

Who were you?
Who are you?
Who was I?
Who am I?

I do not recognize you
Fire in your eyes
And in the mirror
I do not recognize myself

I must live speechless
Without you
Your listening ear
And caring heart

A river of pain
Can it be crossed?
A deep chasm
Can it be bridged?

Emptiness remains
You have gone
A missing friend
Learning to live

Might I hope
