Dead Friends

the dead are among my friends

I speak to them daily

they reveal nothing

of what is to come

but they tell me how nice

it will be to have me among them

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.

  1. Simply yet so masterfully written.

  2. we shared the same muse today

  3. At the age, level of disability, and level of that most efficient of killers, poverty that I felt a lot of comfort reading this. It is a nice thought that all of those who are gone before me and who are on the runway to leave before me…. that we will all be together again…
    You have brought much peace to my soul sir.

    • Thank you, Brenda. 🙂 Death is such a verboten topic because it’s morbid and dark but it’s a road we will travel so why not talk or write about it? And, while it’s a sad, morose thought, we all know a lot of dead people. It’s great to meet you! 🙂
