Missing My Friend Becca

I miss my friend Becca
Even before she is gone
She had thought this a safe place
Free from conflict
Judgment

A place where all can freely express
Where have all the past poets gone
Do any of their words still echo in our minds
Do they disappear into obscurity
Who is left to sing their praises 
I will sing for Becca
I will stand up for my friend
I will stand beside my brother Freddie
I will continue to breath their words
Feel their hearts beat within my chest
They matter
They command my attention
Their words and spirits have significance
So I will miss my friend Becca
I will shed a tear for a heart that is broken
For good friends are hard to find
She is worthy of being missed
Today I say goodbye
I wish for her to live in a land of smiles
A place where dreams are realized
She deserves no less
She offered us her best
The essence of a soul
Expressed through precious words
I miss her already
Before she has gone
Maybe it's not too late.

Dedicated to Becca

    Had another read...see you've made changes. Yes...I pay attention. My post way down there was based on some lines of the first one...beautiful this way as well.

    You are observant my dear. I sometimes go back later and make changes.

    We have lost a good heart and wonderful writer, let's hope she returns soon. Lovely tribute here Rick, she certainly is missed. Take care, Richard

    I thought she was a good poet and though I did not know her all that well, I really liked her. I sure hope she comes back, and that she will see this poem you wrote for her!

    I'm so saddened to hear that Becca is or may be leaving? I love her poetry, her words of encouragement, her kindness. Please may it just be temporary if she does. : (

    I am glad you wrote this Richard, I hope it sends a strong message to all of us soupers, to be gentle with peoples heart, once you lost them, we don't get them back, so you TLC whenever you can, I know you do, and my heart appreciates you R, xxx

    Thanks Rose. Writers are sensitive by nature so it is important to use extra care. You wouldn't knock the petals off a flower.
