I have never been; depression
Never was my thing, the
Sorrow wrenched itself
Deep in when people lost
Themselves and gone.  All
My courses
Have gone ill outwith
My will to keep them
Straight and true - I lost
You and you and
I have myself in
Silence held and
Wait to see the next
Befall, the knelled event
That tells me I have
Turned another corner and
Lost another friend.
