No Words (standard:poetry, 99 words)

There are times when you are simply lost for words...

They asked grand words and phrases of me 

They wanted eulogies and high poetry 

But I am struck dumb 

Rhyme deserts me 

And the rhythm is gone 

You are gone 

And try as I might I can't push the words out 

I know that through the years the thought of you will summon tears 

Like the smell of grass carried softly by the breeze 

You are gone from me 

And I have no words 

So I stand here with tears 

But with smiles as well 

But no fine words to end 

Other than these: 'you were a true friend.'
