a nearly irish toast for absent friends

if ever we were friends
who parted ways
weep not
we will meet again
if our words were true

if ever we were lovers
who walked away
lament no more kisses
it was for the best
as our hearts were not meant
to be lashed and blue

if ever we were family
and life led us astray
regret not the i love yous
as for that moment
i meant my words
and with every breath
still do

to absent friends
