Special Friends

Poem By Lynette Dias Gouveia

You have withdrawn from me
for reasons I do not understand
You have begun to avoid me
when I reach to touch your hand

I try hard to comfort you
but in your world you drift away
I know you want to leave
How can I make you stay

I don’t want commitments
that you’re not prepared to make
You must believe, my darling
I give, never to take

I cannot say much
for I know not what you feel
Behind that sedate façade
there is so much you conceal

Can’t we stay together
a week, a month or two
I’m a solitary survivor
even though I seem a fool

Maybe I am a fool
for I’m artless with my heart
Tears brim my eyes
Alas! I know we’re going to part

Remember, I once told you
I will love you till the end
If it makes you happy, Leave
We’ll part as ‘Special Friends’
