Meeting My Forever Friend

meeting-my-forever-friend

Letters streamed through endless miles

My trusted confidant contained therein

Neatly

Kept securely

Always there

Always willing

Yet, safely

At a distance

A very, very dear friend

Tender thoughts upon his photo

Smiles at recorded voice

My mind swims of

Intimate understandings

Acceptance — full, complete

Now I’m standing at the airport

Heart pounding

A heavy sigh, still pounding

Hands in pockets

Gazing ‘round

Arms now folded

Across my chest

Echoing footsteps

A roar of new voices

Scattered faces in the crowd

My heart beats faster as I swallow

Gazing, searching

And then

Suddenly

He’s right beside me

Silly smiles full engaged

No words for what eyes convey

A longing hug

A fierce embrace

Eyes connect once more

Hearts blend as one
