I had a friend call me to say
They were dying ;s they didn’t
Want to see me didn’t want
To be remembered as that
Shadow of self at times forgetting
Who they and we are
They wanted to say sorry
For the times we fell out and
Let me know that we were
Both so stupid to let so much
Time pass between our hugs
We arranged catchup time
To reason an catch two jokes
The call to say they had died
Was not a surprise nor were
The tears of sorry for our missed
Goodbye but that last gift of
Hope still remains in my heart
And surprisingly that is what
I remember the most that even
At the end of it all amongst
The madness even if only
By death there is something
Positive that we can give to
Others hope of a different
Tomorrow today
