My friend

We have walked thus far together
and enjoyed the company
we have shared a meal
shared our homes
shared the silence of study
and the noise of our music.

You have departed
it ends the things before
and you go on
the better for it all
and the woman you have chosen
like a coat from the cold,
may it never wear thin!

And I will remain
with a smile mixed with pain
as you set your face away
because you must
and you ought to
and such is the way it should be.

My friend, farewell.
