A Friend Must Now Depart

A Friend Must Now Depart ~ Photo by Patrice

A friend must now depart
an angel holds her hand
guides her on the journey
she must start
no one wants this to be
but know she must go
as an angel takes her hand
guides her to heavens oh so bright

My friend must depart
a great sadness fills my soul
my hurting heart.

Sadness comes and overwhelms me
It sinks into my heart
Envelopes me
No escape can I find.

Sadness reigns, is defined
By coursing thru my veins
To my head, to my heart
Sadness indeed does reign.

Sadness is in control
Is a thought
I can’t help but feel
It steals all love
All sacred thoughts.

This sadness
Great sadness is in my heart.
~ Patrice    

Rest in peace dear friend Clive.

A Great Sadness

A great sadness
Has taken over my life.

A great sadness
Not from stress, toil or strife.

A great sadness
Gives me no relief.

A great sadness
Is this that I speak.
