For Debbie

The travels done, I'll say goodbye,

The way I was denied,

Your heart is gone but here I am,

To show the way I cry.

Our times misplaced, and now I grieve,

The way I said I would,

And even though you told me no,

The pain will never leave.

As a dream you travel, noble pure and true,

To a place I've never seen,

Beautiful until the end and now;

Spiritual and new.

I wish I could believe, we never truly die,

The way she told me to,

Because pain now holds my chest secure,

Forever, say goodbye.

In memory of my RL friend, Debbie, who died last night after a yearlong battle with cancer.
