Goodbye My Friend

goodbye my friend
three words I hate
to hear or speak
and yet

fall from my tongue
or on my ears
too often
for my tastes

I gaze in wonder
on the path
we’ve walked
together for a time

and now you say
your road continues
a different way
from mine

I wish you’d stay
and walk along
beside me
for a while

a few days more
to share this road
before you
say goodbye

but friendships have
no shelf life
and I cannot but
let you go

I’ll turn to walk
where my path leads
it is my
only choice

just know now, friend
as you traverse
the path you
choose today

I’ll miss your voice
and be lonely
though another traveler
comes my way

as I go on
in full pursuit
of beauty
in this wood

I’ll tune my ears
to hear your steps
in case you find
my path again

TLS, 2008
