Friday Haiku - Remembering P.A.

Haiku Friday


I once had a friend,
The brother I never had,
Diabetic. Died.

I once had a friend,
The brother I never had,
we were really close.

I once had a friend,
I've not had another since,
I don't think I can.

He was my Best Man,
We drank, played, and had a ball.
and then P.A. died.

It happened so fast,
All those many years ago.
Seems like yesterday.

I so miss my friend.
There is a hole in my life,
He used to live in.

The loss of friends is the worst because they are the family you've chosen for yourself.

Beautiful haikus, hon. Beautiful.

This was beautifully sad...

I'm sorry you lost your friend. My best friend is a diabetic, too. There is a feeling of urgency to much of her life, knowing that it will most likely be shorter than most...

It is always tough to lose someone you love, and though time will lessen the pain, it never fills the hole. This is a very nice tribute to your friend.
