A Poem from Janet Cannon's  Poetry Room at IsleWrite.com

letter to my  friend

hi and i hope all is okay
wherever you are you
probably know there's still
no cure for HIV and quite

frankly i know it's not
humanitarian of me but i
don't keep track of those
medical meanderings since

you died i'm very angry about
that and the way you left
us without saying goodbye
has me depressed now i'm

wondering where i should
store what i remember about
your good person heart and
the fun we had i'm wondering

if you miss us as much as
we miss you and how you
think we should proceed now
without you since you've gone
too soon before your sundown
