Inspired by Shellelyn - For a lost friend

    I was inspired to post this by Shelleelyn, who also recently lost a friend to suicide.

    I lost a friend two and a half years ago to suicide - even though I never met him in real life, we were good friends online. One of the sad things about an online friendship is that it took me two months of wondering where he was till I found out. sad

    For Bobby

    Tonight I’ll cry
    But tomorrow I
    Will simply smile
    Just for awhile

    The world will change
    Yet stay the same
    But in memory
    You’ll stay in me

    Tomorrow comes
    With new day charms
    But yesterday
    Will always stay

    If the truth I never know
    Will you ever truly go?
    But farewell my friend
    Time will amend

      Time is the only healer, I am just thinking about another online friend who has made no visits to his page for sometime and your poem is sending a clod shiver down my spine as i have been suspecting this all along.
      I need help , how can I find out?
      No responses to mails.
