A Friend In Death

Death And The Maiden Voyage

A friend of mine

And dear friend of a member of my family

Died today

From the ravages of prostate cancer

And the rains came down on this parched earth

Quenching some desiccated seed

And thus a new plant will grow in his stead

Making and giving oxygen to another human life

So if you see me stop and talk to a tree

And tell the tree it looks familiar

I am not mad

I have not gone around the bend

I know my family

And I know my friend
