A poem of appreciation and tribute for a best friend...


What Have You Been to Me, I Ask?

What have you been to me, I ask?
Then let me answer all too well.
You've been a muse who wears a mask,
a veil of what I cannot tell.
You've been a god, who takes to task
my hidden pride cloaked in a shell.

But now, intense and raven-haired
(and with state fit for a just queen),
you've been the one soul who has dared
to be the friend I've seldom seen,
and the only one with whom I shared
my hope of things that might have been.

Like a compass by which to chart,
You've navigated me all through
life's troubles; and my joyless heart,
a hole in me, now rests with you.
For good or ill, you've been the part
of life whose bliss I never knew.
