Goodbye My Friend

Goodbye My Friend

A Poem by Tomi

Rip Dipo


Reality is confusing

And death is for sure

A wish of my choosing

Would be for death a cure


I hate being uncertain

But life begs to differ

It’s mostly disconcerting

Cause death begs to differ


I’ll always remember you

Your laugh and your quirks

But soon they’ll bury you

And frankly that sucks


My heart bleeds

And my eyelids

Are fragile from

Releasing all this pain


For now, I cease to write

For life’s journey I’ll keep this fight

I wish you were here though

Oh Dipo. Why did you have to go


But I’m sure I’ll see you

Hopefully not anytime soon

For now I’ll carry the joys

Of cracking jokes with you


You were intelligent, smart

We had some deep conversations

Some weird ones too

Goodbye my friend, goodbye


Sleep well, the earth’s loss. Bye, bye, bye dipo. Of all the sad goodbyes I’ve had to say yours hurt the most. Bye. Your Friend Tomi

This is shocking and unpleasant in the moment so sad for the lost of a loved one. The choice of word captured it enough. Welldone I might say, but is a petty for whosoever you have lost. Tomi.

A true, honest tribute to your friend, Tomi. Not many people can express their grief so completely. You did it well.

Sad, well written, I believe every word and admire the depth of your friendship.

Good to remember friends lost too soon. I'm sorry for your lost. I believe writing allowed us to release sadness and later. Remember them. Thank you for the excellent poem.
