New Year's Eve Alone - Poem by June Davis

"Should auld acquaintance
be forgot..."
You were always there for me--
now you're not.
You were my strength,
To every challenge you
said "I Will" --
Now you won't.

You were everything a
person should be,
Sympathetic to the point
of empathy,
You made every pain
bearable,
Eery dream possible
even probable --
now you don't,

You kept every promise,
fulfilled every vow --
until now.
Till death do us part
You were there for me --
Now you're not.
