No Goodbyes

It was that wicked drug,

Not some contagious bug,

That caused a goodbye without a hug.


We certainly cried when you died,

And our tears eventually just dried,

Because your potential to shine was denied.


Even though you are dead,

A fact that we all dread,

After knowing what life you have led,

And every battle that caused bloodshed,

We are confident for what is ahead.



    WELCOME FRIEND - A very very powerful opening poem. Beautifully crafted but the most painful of subjects "The untimely death of a loved one". Drugs are indeed a curse and I like the optimism in the final line. "We are confident ~ for what is ahead". I can empathise because I have had Friends pass into eternity due to an overdose. I thank God my Brother and Sister are still with us and the pain in your poem has made me treasure them even more. Thanks for caring - BRIAN
