Redecorating The Circle Of Life Poem by Susan Williams

Redecorating The Circle Of Life

Rating: 5.0

I lost my friend a week ago
I lost her in my living room
If you listen really really close
You can hear her calling for help
- but the cries are getting fainter.
We're tossing water bottles and food
Amongst the huge piles of new stuff.
Hope she makes it till we get the room redone.
She was an awfully good friend
- and dang, good friends are hard to find.

Good friends are hard to find....that's so true. When our friends leave, this realization strikes us very hard. I love the way you have driven home a very profound message in a lighthearted n humorous way. A huge 10 for this lovely write.

The title and the first few lines.....that is almost a set-up for a tragedy. There is a sadness, a tone of loss. Reading along and one gets a great surprise. With the shift in tone comes the humour. A great work, Susan. A perfect 10.

I am so glad you enjoyed this poem, Mj! ! ! ! I like a tweak in a poem, a step-to-the-side, a muffled giggle! And you are always so appreciative and receptive of these quirky poems for which I thank you very much, my friend! Thank you for the 10 as well.

Richard Wiodarski! ! ! I can almost picture you in a maid's uniform with a duster in your hand chuckling like mad! ! ! I am pleased to make my friends laugh- sometimes it's what gets us through a day! ! ! And I want my dear friends to get through their day with a smile in their heart- even if that day it is just one corner of their heart
