When Close Friends Take Ill

When close friends take ill 
It is a real "bummer"
The next worse thing to taking ill yourself
When close friends near death 
It can really blow your mind
Turn on your love light before it is too late! 
For we are only granted a few moments
in which to enjoy the sun - the ocean - the countryside 
the metropolis
So avoid hate and take a deep breath 
For whatever path you choose I wish that 
The force be with you!
So you can endure the loss of close friends 
And continue onward 
on the difficult road of life!

Matthew - RIP my poet friend - I just learned of your passing. Voices Israel Group of Poets in English will miss your charming poems. I will miss our emails about life. If only I had known you were ill, I would have sent you virtual cards! Your memory will be a blessing. Linda Suchy Secretary Voices Israel

Very hard to watch loved one, friends and family near death, we think we will never ever be normal again, the memory remains for ever, the pain lingers, but life goes on. A beautiful write and a fav. for me Mathew. Blessings, Jennifer.

Matthew, Sorry to hear that you have had someone close to you become ill. There has been some really sick people this fall and winter here in our hometown. A large number have become so ill that they had to go to the hospital. As we get older more people our age get ill and some pass which can diminish our social network. My parents lived into their late nineties but they continued to make friends with younger people and that helped. Sara

as Teppo said, this is a very important message. It's horrible to see them in such bad shape and we can do nothing but lend a listening ear or shoulder to lean on.
