I met you twenty years


when we were


in my back yard...

it was hard to avoid


at first sight...

you moved away shortly


I saw you again

twenty years later

neither of us have changed

but how we felt

had changed

so he left again

I found him twenty years


though this was our last

his eyes were closed

though I knew he was at rest

I met him sixty years earlier

giving birth to our

beautiful baby boy

saddest of all

was knowing he was

his all along....

(it was sad when my best friend


its even sadder when they

have nothing to say

and suddenly fade away.
