The Thief

The Thief

Utter sadness envelops me.

Illness is stealing the life you imagined

in unimaginable ways.

Distance. Friendship. Days through weeks

dissipate with each memory carried.

Days to weeks. Memories.

All I can carry, now. And, heartache, for you,

my friend.


Written for a friend who has a special place in my heart where time & distance do not dare enter to lessen the many decades of shared friendship.
