“A Friend We Feel in the World” by David Ellis

We sit and wish for more
The types of sweet life you see with books
In such colours, too straight, too true
A friend we feel in the world
Our fancies, uncurled, thrilled
Our tears are here, from the sky
To kiss, warm, quick
A sigh of happy gems
We look at heaven, in no doubt
We were loved, well enough
