An ode to a friend

Ain’t worth your time
This lost hope
It ain’t worth your pain
Not worth your soul
Life isn’t a box
Nor the world an oyster
But when it breathes in joy
Don’t you forget to remember — 
Nothing’s worth these tears
For now just hush and smile
For the love around you
Will make it worth your while
It’s not about the people who left
It’s about those who are
Don’t you close your doors
Don’t shut out your heart. 
You are always the love for someone
An exotic mystery with no clues
You will always be this heart’s kindness
A lonely poet’s broken muse 🙂
