GOODBYE FRIEND

1.	Friend, I have stood on the precipice of thy blade before
                     The sharp edge shall slice my heart so precisely, deliberately, cleanly
                     Only one drop of blood shall shed;
                     A silent moan will echo 
                     Through the past and future 
                     With a knowing 
                     Reconcile.


2.	I expected the wind to halt its path;
	I anticipated that the sun would burn a hole though the sky;
	I estimated that the pregnant clouds would give birth to a new
	Ocean that would drown the world with its wetness;
	I knew that that life without your love would was to live without 
	Salt or fire; I know now that I was right..


3.	The phone has stopped ringing;
	When I call you are just coming in or going out.
	The distance in your voice stills the air.

4.                 The mailman never did deliver well;
	Now his deliveries are only the heartless, animosity of bills;
	Your mail takes years to arrive; 
                     When it comes it is a two-lined postcard
	From your vacation life.  

5.	My life is the ocean, deep, wide, calming, threatening,
