Not one single word of either love or friendship



It does so deeply sadden his heart


That out of a chance meeting of two broken spirits


Did not come a more human connection of souls


All that grand and meaningful talk


That passed between these two human people


Of friendship and mutual kindness


Now rings such a death knell of such awkward, twisted silences


Not one single word of either love or friendship


Had passed between them for so long


Only quiet distress and gasping sorrow



“Do not worry my friend” – for that is what he still considers her – “I shall not seek to trouble you, nor it seems, you me”


When her once steady and smiling gaze


Now moves swiftly from his


When common sociality is ignored


Amongst the warm love of a shared family


When a friendship is lost


It does so deeply sadden his heart
