Friends Lost

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Upon my throne I sit confused,

my friends once fair have gone I muse.

Life ensued and ate them up,

no fault of mine no act corrupt.


Just circumstance and marriage break,

has lost my friends and caused this ache.

For I am now alone it seems,

a product of my shattered dreams.


Abandonment has claimed my soul,

and left my heart a gaping whole.

Where once I loved and merry made,

now sits an empty cup I crave.


Once filled with wine as soft as silk,

it now is dry, bereft of ilk.

I miss those days of joy and fun,

where friends embraced and damage none.


But know that life has just begun,

I must accept and carry on.

Sometimes life just culls the heard,

and we must change not act absurd.


Let go of past and friendships lost,

re-enter life not count the cost.

For cycles come and cycles go,

and life ensues and heaven knows.


I must be strong and chances take,

to live my life and joyous make.

New friends will no doubt find me here,

alone no more, I’ll reappear.
