For a Friend

I visited with a friend today. He has cancer and is not expected to live many more months. I will miss him but know that we shall see each other again in heaven. I wrote this for him.

Difficult Days

Next to his friend
His hand
Tears flowing freely

A hateful name
For an even more
Hateful disease

There was no joy
In his eyes
Pain wracked
His beaten spirit

No words
Can bridge the gap
Between the now
And tomorrow

Whispered prayers
Of hope
Between two men
Say enough

Dark days to come
With tears and pain
Aren’t enough
To break the spirit

They part
These two friends
There are few left
But certain of
A reunion.
