For A Friend 
Tonight it's Roger on my mind
Another good man caught up in the grind
I wonder about the P. O.
Those of us will never know
Only sadness for a friend
One day too, my heart will mend

I referenced this poem in batch #56. My friend from work shot and killed himself. He always said he didn't like work and the odd tipple often times got a hold of him as well. He lost his job and started all over again at a grocery. He crashed his car and disappeared. He was found in a park near his home a day or two later. I have an unabridged write up as well, but this version is the one I posted on his Legacy funeral web site.
