A Promise I made, (a Haiku Inspired Poem)

Updated on April 24, 2013
Yes, Jesus was there.
Yes, Jesus was there.

To My Friend


He lay on pavement,

My friend burned, and was dying.

Skin barely hung on,

Comfort given, I was trying.


Last words were spoken,

His head cradled in my arms.

"Is Jesus here now?"

"Yes", i said, "He's with us now."


My young friend then died.

But, before he flew away,

He knew that I cared,

And I still do, till this day,

      Sometimes, all a friend needs to be at peace is to know that we are there. Lovely, Who!

      And it haunted you until now. I hope that you find peace at having disclosed this. Wow, what a burden to carry and to recall.

      This was a friend about my age and worked at a gas station. We were watching a ball game inside and he and another worker were taking a short cut by using gasoline on the lifters. Another friend and I tried to help the boys, but it was too late and they both died in the ambulance. Unforgettable for me. whonu
