My friend Elaine

by Zoe Marks

 

I dedicate this poem to my Dear friend Elaine
And I hope in some small way it helps to ease the pain
Of being someone special even though it's hard
I just want her to know that she's held in high regard
 
Elaine has a deep longing
Which she tries to hide
But I know about all those feelings
That she keeps well guarded inside
I know it isn't easy to lead a double life
But revealing her secret would only lead to trouble and strife
As it did back then with the wife
 
Perhaps one of these days she'll be contented
Though the surgery could leave her broken and dented
I think to myself, I wish I could help
But nothing I do would stop the yelp!
 
I hope we'll continue to be good friends
I'm sure we will if we get round life's bends
There are times when everything seems such a big issue
I think in time we can stop the crying and need for tissue
 
So let me end these lines with a happy flavour
As I have to thank her for doing a favour
I wish her success in what life has to hold
And tell her that I'm very fond of her ...if I may be so bold!
