Parting is such sweet sorrow...

Parting is such sweet sorrow...

Jesse Patrick Bohanan

...but fate ordains that dearest friends must part.

The indignity of departure
is matched solely by the dignity
with which I hold each of thee
in the highest of esteem.

It is with solemn grace
that I leave this place,
yet go not far away.

For I must say
that each past day
shall cherished be, in truth.

And with, forsooth,
the mark of youth
borne upon thy heads;

yet shall thee tread
within this stead
with haste towards thy goals.

Saith I this unto thee:
Verily, thou art treasured
within my heart
as boon companions;
and my support
shalt be but a shout away.

Thy sincerest and most loyal compatriot and brother in arms,
Jesse Patrick Bohanan
