There are times that test the best of us, there are times that show our worst.

I want to see the best in us, if not I will be cursed.

With painful and unseemly thoughts, which I don’t want to have,

I want to see the best of us and that which we never had .

 

It’s hard to say goodbye to one who said goodbye so soon,

A different house, a different life, a larger private room…

If such is so I wish you well and promise you to keep,

Within my thoughts and in my heart so dearly and so deep.
