Especially Where You’re Concerned

.—on a thought of Maurice Sendak
.

I’ll cry my way to the grave
because the world disappears
one friend at a time
the old man said, but
especially where you’re concerned
there’s joy in the thought
of leaving first because
I won’t have to cry
over the loss of  you
