" Same Time Next Year ? "

I looked in my friend's eyes today
I could see clear into his soul
His eyes spoke volumes I must say
The illness is taking its' painful toll.

Although his face seemed devoid of pain
And his words gave him not away
His eyes bespoke of awful strain
And I silently began to pray.

Seeing the soul in another's eyes 'tis true
'Twixt spirits unspoken words were shared;
May blessings upon him swiftly ensue
I hope and pray he knew I cared.

We said goodbye until the next time
With cheery words of holiday cheer
Can't help wondering sans reason and rhyme
If we'll see one another same time next year.
