My Dear Friend

My Dear Friend

A Poem by Alice Walker

Why do you seem to change, my sweet?
Is it because we humans never keep a promise?
Or is it because you want to show your many faces?

My darling, do you intend to keep your promises?
Will you never tell me a lie nor make me seem a fool?
My Lady, will you keep your binding oaths?

You have kept your covenants, my Queen,
Yet your people claim that you are untrustworthy.
Why do they say that, my Liege, why?

Your Majesty, why do you hide?
It hurts me to not see your shining face.
You know this, yet you willingly hide.
I found my true Queen now, my friend.
She captures me as you once had long ago,
But we are separated by the unforgiving sea.

My dear friend, my sweetling stares upon you
As I still do often when I remember.
Do you still remember me?

My old friend, my dearest and I are united now.
We wish for your blessings though as we still notice you.
We promise by you to care for one another until you stop showing your faces.

Goodnight, my oldest and dearest friend.
