The Lost Friend

Poetry, Writer life

Oh, dear boy, you had such a beautiful smile,
One that shone bright through your eyes.
Oh, dear boy, you were such a kind soul,
Wild, free and out of control.
You were so carefree, I envied you
Always surrounded by jolly hues.
But then, tragedy stuck you like lightening,
Stole that smile, so bright and heart-warming.
Rivers and rivers of tears were spilt,
But, nothing healed your heart that split.
Now you smile, a smile so formal,
Your dark eyes, make my heart shudder.
It’s all gone and forgotten you say,
But it’s that tragedy running you every day.
What happened was cruel, I wish them upon none,
But what you’ve become makes my heart burn.
A shell of a man, that once was so jolly,
A living dead, faking smiles so dolly.
Cry your eyes out, break down once again,
Fix yourself back to what used to be my friend.
I shall stay by you side, take all the time you need,
That jolly friend is the one who I dearly miss.
