Oh The Loved Ones

Oh The Loved Ones
By Pauline Harris

Somehow we met
You were walking
Out of the hospital 
Almost running 
A joyous smile
Swept across 
Your face
I was a bit
Frightful 
As surgery 
Was my mission 
You just smiled
And said hi
My nerves 
Seemed to 
Fade away
I looked at you
And saw someone 
Who was hurting 
But instead of
Dwelling
You were 
Excited 
Joyful 
In that moment 
And that was
The start
Of a short lived
Friendship 
For you died
Only a few years
Later
Bye bye bye
30 years ago
This December 
I miss your smile
