Sonnet: A Lost Friendship
You were my friend then: now almost stranger!
Our friendship appeared once very glorious;
What happened meantime, gives me great anger;
Our friendship no longer remains serious.
Fool you were, to be misled by others,
Who drove a giant wedge ’midst our friendship;
Cut off is our friendship, which me bothers;
A nadir has come in our relationship.
What years of intimacy have been lost?
You’ve been foolish, very much on your part;
Our friendship today is just but a ghost;
Won’t your eyes see the true love in my heart?
Dear friend however,...
Sonnet: Life's Crosses
Life's crosses seem to grow heavier each day;
It looks to be a mammoth one at times;
My fettered hands can only try to pray;
O God, do usher in some better climes.
How long must I this ignominy feel?
My days on earth are dreary, gloomy still;
And slippery is ground under my heel;
My mind and heart appears so very ill!
