Upon Losing a Friend or Lover

It does no good to have remorse for partners you are missing.
Better that you concentrate on ones you could be kissing.
Be not forlorn. Frustration is something you can fix.
Just engage with life again and get back in the mix.
Life was meant to be lived out, no matter what the cost,
though it might take many friends to replace one you’ve lost.

    As the number of friends keeps thinning, it gets harder to find “the crowd” to replace the loss. I’m not sure there is always an answer. When I was younger, there was a crowd. Now, we are not only sparser but we are spread across the country. No neighbors. No one nearby. If it weren’t for the computer, we’d had no contact at all except maybe by phone, for those who still actually talk on the phone.

    I enjoyed your photos, Judy. I read an article a while ago that contended that staying in contact with friends and belonging to a community group, was just as effective, if not more so, than anti-depressants, and seemed to reduce the risk of dementia. Have I mentioned that before? I forget. 🙂
