My friend

I remember a boy

A boy with laughter in his eyes

A boy who loved life

My friend.

I remember my friend

The times we spent talking

Until the sun came up

My trusted friend.

I remember my friend

And the night he slashed his wrists

And stood in the middle of the road waiting to be run over

My dispairing friend.

I remember trying to help

Understand the torment that lay behind those laughing eyes

Being told I was a good friend and was loved

My loving friend.

I remember the phone call

Telling me he was dead

His mother found him hanging

Goodbye dear friend.

It’s been years now,

Yet all of a sudden,

My thoughts turn to you

My pale, goth friend.

I remember with love

The beauty you carried

The gentle spirit you showed

My beautiful friend.

May your spirit be at peace

May your spirit be free

I hope I see you again

My friend.
