Goodbye, My Friend: John



I watched as you

Stood there still.

I was scared for you once again.

Scared as I would lose my friend.


Your coat flowing with the wind,

As you looked down and faked a grin.

I could see your pain,

As it mirrored mine.


I hoped everything would work out,

That we would both be fine.


But then you hung up

And gazed down.

Your fear so clear.

Your death so near.


You had said goodbye,

And now was time.


Falling forward too fast to catch.

Your arms extended as if to stretch.

And down you went, as you fell.

And then my best friend,

Was dead.


October 27th, 2015.
