Friend: A Poem


Friend: A Poem

A flash of ginger out of
The corner of my eye.

In the emptiness,
I see you, still

Eyes of green,
Wide and bright

Looked at me with
Ancient wisdom,

And spoke to me,
Without a sound

Two strays, invisible to a
World that passed us by.

We shared a can of corn
On a shadowy street.

You healed me,
When my heart bled.

You were my light,

In endless darkness

Vanished from my arms,
But not forever.

Residing deep

Within my heart
