A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

My Best Friend’s Departure

I jumped; you caught me.

I laughed; you joked.

I was down; you picked me up.

I crumbled; you glued me back together.

I loved you; you loved me back.

You jumped; I couldn’t catch you.

You forgot to laugh; I couldn’t remind you.

You were down; I couldn’t hold you.

You crumbled; I had no glue.

You loved me; I still love you.

Without any warning or sign,

You ventured to a world divine.

I refused to say goodbye,

Yet tonight I cry.

My tears are for you, my friend,

But our legacy will not end.

For I shall see you soon,

But first I have living to do.

I promise I won’t forget.

Your face is embedded in my heart.
