Friday 25 May 2012


We had a major power cut
at 20:50 yesterday evening,
and the entire town is still
running on emergency generator.
Some time during that
black, black night,
your thirty-two years on Earth
abruptly ended.
And I lost my best friend.

It's almost as if
the power grid shut itself down
in honour of the passing
of so noble a Spirit:
just as my mind has shut down
into numbness today.

Sara, this will probably
come across as selfish, but
a future without you
scares me.
How will I survive
without my trusted confidante?
Who will I share my joys with?
And who will patiently listen
and offer comfort when life hurts?
Your mischievous sense of fun
has always been my lifeline.
Remember the lid?
How you made me laugh,
my woes instantly forgotten.
We've been inseparable for so long.
Now there's only me.

Sara, I lost a part of my Soul last night.
I had no time to thank you
for being so selfless and giving,
nor even to say 'Goodbye.'
And that troubles me deeply.

Oh I know you would smile
inside yourself and think
'You're a medium. You speak
to 'dead' people all the time.
You know there is no death!'
But, Sara, I'm only human,
and the loss of your physical being
has broken my heart.

I apologise, but
I am going to have to end here.
It is too painful to continue.

Goodbye dear friend.
I love you.
I always have.
I always will.
