Goodbye My Friend

Goodbye My Friend 


I wake to a world of indifference and sorrow 

My soul you’ve returned, all stilted and hollow


A desperate break, our mutual agreement 

This mirror brings truth, its reflection I lament


A life apart, an eagle unbound 

The north wind she seeks, for in the south I am found


To health, to wealth, to art and desire

To your success unfettered, to chains and barbed wire


For truth be told, this warrior must rise

My heart is a weakness, a whisperer of lies


The courage to walk the path of forgiveness

A redemption of self, a life of sheer madness


Goodbye my friend, I shall remember the light

Your footsteps fade, I turn, it’s night

A puppet master with our heart strings. If you ever publish a collection of your poetry, let me know. I will purchase it immediately and put it by my bedside to keep me company on lonely nights. I love your work! It speaks to me. ❤

A lament with no hope of reconciliation, a sadness so well articulated.

Thank you for this exquisite poem,
