In Memoriam


Friendship forged in childhood
In our wartime homeland
Although divided by the oceans
Death cannot destroy

In our wartime homeland
Two little girls met
Sharing their joys, fears and pain

Although divided by the oceans
Their two hearts remained true
Sharing more albeit by mail or phone

Death cannot destroy
Our countless stories
Rest in peace, my friend.

P.S. She was my best friend. I wrote this poem on the day of her funeral, Tuesday 27 December 2011. She loved violets, so I offered her Australian native violets.
