To My Friend Who Passed Away

—Judy Sandretto

I lived my life in a tiny box
with walls no one could see.

When I finally found a way out
you helped me
with my new life
and I loved you for that.

Even though we rarely saw each other
and spoke to each other less and less
I knew you were there if I needed you.

I live my life in a pretty little house
surrounded by trees
but now you are gone
and I don’t feel safe anymore.
