His eyes widen as his best friend
Asks him to do the impossible.
He has to let him go.
He knows he does.
He just can’t bring himself
To be responsible
For an innocent man’s death.
Even if there is a possibility
Of seeing him again.
He closes his eyes  
And sighs silently
As he gives the doctor the word
And lets go
One last time.
