My Absent Friend - Poem by Linda Harnett

I bow my head and close my eyes in prayer,
And send my thoughts to you my absent friend,
Though miles apart I know that you’re still there,
You’ll be with me until the bitter end,

I pray that you’ll find happiness again,
And may you find the strength and will to win,
I may not be the one to ease your pain,
In love, my friend, there is no thought of sin,

My love has no beginning, has no end,
I’m blinded so your faults I cannot see,
I’m at a loss and try to comprehend,
Just what it was that made you come to me,

You touched me with a gentle tender touch,
My absent friend, I’m missing you, so much.
