Elegy For A Friend - Poem by John Anstie

The threads that join two loyal hearts
will span an ocean of time,
from moments of forgotten art,
the echo of hearts' rhyme
transcends the avalanche of pain,
that severed threads beget,
as sure as golden leaves shall fall
this love shall not forget.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written for someone, who lost a close friend, but who lives on the other side of an ocean, and whose grief was heightened by an inability to be there in their last moments.
