(I wrote this five years ago)
To-day I said farewell to a friend.
We've been together for over four years.
My friend had no choice to depart,
And believe me there were many tears.
Who was there first thing in the morning
When I'm not looking my best?
Who was first to see my poems
Before any of the rest?
Whose taken me abroad
To visit here and there?
Oh, the many hours of enjoyment
With my friend I did share.
My friend is taking a long earned rest,
No more can be done.
My friend is in the plac
Where LAPTOPS have their fun.
I reluctantly had to get a replacement
To get my poems to you.
I couldn't giver up doing that,
Friends in Blogland like you are few.
