Whiskey Charlie....

Your name always brought me a smile 

A kind comment from you... well that was something special

I was close friends with some people on booksie, and you were always in that group.  Even though I didn’t know too much about you

You would take the time, and read our work.  You would leave kind comments straight from the heart

I would not even notice myself smile as I saw your face and name appear on my page

Then one day one of our friends informed me you had passed away.

 


Of course as usual, such tragic news does not sink in right away.
All I could think of to say was, “That’s a shame, he was a great guy.”

And something hollow remained.  But what?

Days turn into weeks, and weeks turn into months and so on and so on.  We move on and forget.

But as I was flipping through my comment page on a short story I wrote, your name and face appeared.  As if you were still here.

I didn’t notice the tears running down my face as I finished reading your comment.

I will not see those anymore from you.

Where did you go my friend?  Are you happy and okay?  Where did you go?
