Flowers for a Lost Friend


poem by Yaisha Vargas

I lost a friend at noon today;

I wish the world would stop,


And everybody could express

How much their friends they love.


My heart is sad, my soul is wet,

My mind whirls in deep grief;


Something has died, and though I tried,

It was not meant to be.

And with the pain, two tears come,

One happy, and one sad:

For even though I lost a friend

I honor what we had—

Our joyful times, our shared despairs

Our hopes, and happy dreams.

It makes me love, and deeply care

For friendships still with me.
