Losing A Friend

Poem By Shalom Freedman

Losing a friend
Is losing a part of oneself-

Why does anyone have to die?

There is only one of this person
Only one-
And when they are gone
One's own world is so much less-

Sadness and anger will not save anyone-

Losing a friend is knowing too
That I myself will one day die.

Because they helped me feel more alive
They gave me an intensity

Many have won prizes

Nothing Tells Me How To Begin Again

Nothing tells me how to begin again
Or even how to try

And how can I expect to do at the age of seventy- five?

I Must Continue To Write

There will always be another poem
And with that poem- hope
However absurd-
So even if I despair
