The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say. ~Anaïs Nin


I wish I could end all pain
Mine began with bereavement
It never stops or wanes

Her death made me nearly insane
So I froze permanently with grief
I wish I could end all pain

I miss how everything was a game
And how she quickly befriended me
It never stops or wanes

I miss the way she tossed her mane
Of golden hair in fits of glee
I wish I could end all pain

It drinks, like a starving drain
On my happiness with ease
It never stops or wanes

Now tears flood my face like rain
As I remember all our memories
I wish I could end all pain
It never stops or wanes

The author's comments:
The poem arose from the death of a dear friend of mine from cancer.
