Permission to Depart for a Dear Friend

Poetry By: charmer063
Religion and spirituality



I wrote this to my dear friend 3 weeks before he passed. Cancer was discovered the day before he was to walk out of prison a free man. His world, the world of his wife to be, all shattered in one diagnosis in Jan. 2013...I wrote this Mar. 16,13; he passed Apr.11,'13. I am grateful beyond measure peace was made with God and self.

FROGGY
TO SAY, "THEY BROKE THE MOLD" WHEN YOU CAME INTO THE WORLD, IS A GROSS UNDERSTATEMENT. SOME WOULD SAY, "THANK GOD! WE NEED MORE LIKE YOU…" OTHERS MIGHT SAY THEY WISHED THE WORLD WAS WITHOUT HEATHENS LIKE YOU…
BOTH AGREE, THERE EXISTS NO ONE THAT COULD EVER FIT YOUR MOLD…

SOME WOULD SAY YOU ARE THE GREATEST OF FRIENDS…
OTHERS WOULD SAY YOU ARE THE GREATEST OF ENEMIES….
BOTH AGREE; THERE EXISTS NO ONE WHO CAN FIT YOUR "GREAT"

SOME WOULD SAY YOU BROUGHT THEM LAUGHTER AND SMILES…
OTHERS WOULD SAY THEY LIVED IN FEAR OF YOU….
BOTH WOULD AGREE; THERE EXISTS NO ONE WHO CAN FIT YOUR "ENERGY"

SOME WOULD SAY YOU ARE WHIMSICAL AND FUN AND COMICAL…
OTHERS WOULD SAY YOU ARE TOO SERIOUS, HARDENED AND READY TO FIGHT…
BOTH WOULD AGREE; THERE EXISTS NO ONE WHO CAN FILL YOUR "FEEL"

SOME WOULD SAY THEY ARE PRIVILEGED TO WITNESS THE KIND AND THOUGHTFUL YOU…
OTHERS WOULD SAY THEY WITNESS TO THE ANGRY, AND VENGEFUL YOU…
BOTH AGREE; THERE EXISTS NO ONE, WHO CAN FILL YOUR "TRUTHFUL"

SOME WOULD SAY YOU CAN BE COUNTED ON TO ACT ON YOUR WORDS….
OTHERS WOULD CAUTION; YOU CAN BE COUNTED ON TO ACT ON YOUR WORDS…
BOTH WOULD AGREE; THERE EXISTS NO ONE WHO CAN FILL YOUR "TRUST"

SOME WOULD SEND THEIR LOVE TO YOU…OTHERS WOULD HIDE…
BOTH WOULD AGREE; LOVED OR HATED; FRIEND OR FOE, THERE EXISTS NO ONE WHO CAN FILL YOUR "RESPECT"…

YOU MY FRIEND, HAVE FULFILLED WHATEVER PURPOSE WAS YOURS; THE TIME HAS COME, NOT FOR YOU TO DEPART THIS WORLD, BUT THE EARTH HAS BIRTHED ANOTHER WHOSE MOLD, LIKE YOURS WILL BE BROKEN.

I HAVE IN MY YEARS, MET ONLY THREE OF KINDRED SPIRIT AND RECOGNITION, COMPREHENSION, AND RESPECT OF EVERY EMOTION WITHIN BEING EXPERIENCED BY THE PERSON WITH WHOM YOU ARE COMMUNICATING.


THOUGH CUT SHORT IN QUANTITY, THE QUALITY IS BEYOND MEASURE...THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME A FRIENDSHIP NOT TAINTED WITH BIOLOGICAL FUNCTION, NOR WITH JUDGMENT. IT HAS BEEN A PRIVILEGE MY FRIEND, MY VERY VERY DEAR FRIEND….

YOU ARE ABOUT TO REACH A STATE OF PERFECTION, BEYOND OUR COMPREHENSION….
I LOVE YOU MY PRECIOUS- PRECIOUS- FRIEND. PASS IN PEACE AND BE RECEIVED IN WARMTH, COMFORT, AND PUREST OF LOVES…
