Losing a Friend


I can undertake, your taking yourself away:

Accustomed to the coldness, the lack-of-hand

Upon my knee; forgotten yesterday.


These differences between us still won’t lend

To thoughts that you no longer are a friend.


So taken away you are, to another bed.

This I undertake; but understand,

The sting is in your smile to him, instead.


There are times when losing a partner is rewarding, freeing, and generally for the best. THere are other times, however, where it is like losing a friendship. That is the sharpest of stings.
