honouring friends

when you spend the day creating
for a special person
to lift their spirits
and to share your love
and then a phone call
one you’ve been dreading
hoping not to receive

grief hits you a side blow
and you come tumbling down
the pain from within
echoes that of times past
losing a loved life long partner
so heartbreakingly hard

tears flow
where do I go with this
where can I go
but to other friends

spend time with friends
before its too late
make time
take time
before you have to join to celebrate
the life well lived
of yet another friend
who has left
too soon
