Don´t Be Sad, Just Be Glad. For The Beautiful Times
For The Happy Times
Two empty chairs, rest side by side,
Placed midst a scenic view,
Two empty chairs without you and me,
lonely, despite the wondrous scenery.
How many hours did we spend head to head?
Talking till late in the night,
We could accomplish so much way
As we sat in those now empty chairs.
Your problems would pour out as tumultuous words,
feeling free to tell all when it was just
you and me.
I felt all your pain as we sipped
and expounded on when, how and why?
these problems should be.
Now and then we´d survey the awesome view,
sighing at the beauty around us.
Hurting inside, though surrounded by splendour,.
Life can be strange.
Need to re--arrange,
but the constant...... our friendship......
is life long and solid.
The incredible views from those now empty chairs,
still there for others to see,
Generations of humans, merely
dust wafting through,
The mountains and rivers remain.
Natures´beauty is strong, always the same,
if humans no longer interfere with its flow.
If humans appreciate its sparkle and glow...
Sun on the river sparkling by day,
Moon on the same scene at night.
Giving a glow and just enough light,
to walk to our now empty chairs.
As Tennyson wrote, so long ago.
´´Men may come and men may go,
But I go on forever.´´
( The Brook by Alfred Lord Tennyson)
Life is short, my beautiful friend,
We are blessed, even though I know,
You struggle that we cannot be,
physically close, as in the days we would sit
in scenic a view in our now empty chairs.
I love you no less, now that miles are
There´s not a day that I don´t think of you.
At the end of the day, let´s not be too sad,
Things have changed, but be glad,
That it happened at all. We are blessed.
Don´t be sad that it´s gone,
My beautiful friend, Diane.
