Sarah’s Request

     After reading quite a bit of what I had written, a co-worker,(Sarah) a strong supporter of my endeavors, asked me if I had anything regarding the loss of a close personal friend. Within the hour, this is what developed. I hope all of you who have had a special friend depart, will find it comforting.


“Sarah’s Request”

 Joy and sorrow blend,

in memory, without end,

and for a moment brief,

the time suspends.

And I see your face, as clear,

as any, standing near.

And I miss you,

more than ever,

then, my friend.
