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.
