NOT SUCH AN ABSENT FRIEND

For no more than a few short months could you stay,
Now, you're half a world away,
Though, I still see two sets of footprints in the sand,
Just like, when we used to walk hand in hand,
The gentle waves.....
Bring to life the memory of your laughter in my ear,
Telling me that you're still near,
Two years on, we still talk every day,
Never run out of things to say,
You are still my friend most dear,
And, when I think of you, you're nowhere else......
You're here!

Andrew - such a sad poem my friend and I'm feeling for you here so much. Sometimes I just wish there were no borders and we could just live where we want to - but life's just not like that so we have to take things as they are and hope for the best. Sounds like you have found a gentle friend heart1

Andrew such a poignant write. Yes, even time and space can't draw any absence or create any barriers as the spirit thrive in each other's presence. The last words are so powerful. Keep it up Andrew. The mind has a way of making it so real...I wish you luck....


And, when I think of you, you're nowhere else......
You're here!
