We buried a very close friend yesterday.
I just saw him the night before he passed away. Nobody suspected anything. Though I did notice that he was looking slightly thinner than last I saw him, which was about a year ago.
That night we talked of old times and new. Of things done and planned. He paid for my drink since I had to leave earlier and I promised him I'll repay the deed soon.
That's one promise I'm already breaking.
I'm not sure if I'm handling this as well as I thought I could.
This song is totally about something else, but I'm taking it out of its original context since this bit feels fit.
The First Taste
- Fiona Apple
Give me the first
Is this why you're leaving us so soon?
To all my friends who are sharing this unbelievable and heartbreaking loss, I still have no words of solace. But I'm hoping all of us will find them soon, in our solitude, or in the comfort of others.
