Atonement. You are my boss,

forgive me, I face a loss.

But I thank you, nonetheless,

for being my guardian angel through the mess.

Looking back, reflection in the sands of time.

I see that you refer to me as "mine."

I wouldn't have it any other way.

You are the reason there is any illumenscence in my day.

You are that word I find difficult to utter.

For so long now, my eyes have hid behind a shutter.

No more. Amendment. I will grow,

in meek efforts, just to show,

that you are a FRIEND.

There is no other word, no other end.

When I'm without,

you run to me, no doubt.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

No words can I speak, with gratitued I am blue.

I'll remember always the times we shared.

I'll never forget how much you cared.

Too bad death's taken you by the leash.

O friend, may you rest in peace.
