They are so very hard to find-

But, when found they truly bind!

It is hard to let go of that special friend-

Enduring, challenged right to the end.

You watch them suffer & become unlike themselves-

You must not intrude – you cannot delve.

Into their mind – now growing faint-

They are in their own world – almost a saint?

Hard to give up that spiritual bond-

Because of him I have grown very fond.

Watching him leave – in his own style-

I surely do miss his engaging smile.
