  • Well you and I cover a lot of territory
    through 4 decades we claim that place
    we're both getting older and brittler
    the inevitabilities pulling at our seams
    our last encounter only two days and a nite
    we felt that inevitability deep in our souls
    and I respect you beyond words in that way
    that small hard to bear parting of ways
    and all the crazy memories we've shared
    your last words to me, "be well" linger
    across the trails in woods and hills
    on hikes and runs and beers we've downed
    l'chaim Mary my dear friend and beyond
