CHAMBER MUSIC: 17, by         Recitation         Poet's Biography
First Line: Because your voice was at my side
Last Line: Who was my friend.
Subject(s): Friendship; Transience; Impermanence

Because your voice was at my side

I gave him pain,

Because within my hand I held

Your hand again.

There is no word nor any sign

Can make amend -- -

He is a stranger to me now

Who was my friend.
