Inimitable, friendship.

Across vast expanses of time and space

You occupy my heart, friend.

Life transpires, sending us on convoluted paths,

And diverts attention from our friendship.

But even as weeks and months elapse,

Our bond remains unshakeable.

Our poignant exchanges feign as if uninterrupted.

The love of veritable friends, inimitable.

Distant Friend (For Deanne)

Hearts reconnect in friendships sound.
Evoke memories, reminiscent of days passed.
Rouse laughter, camaraderie in earnest.
Full bellies and raised glasses
Further join the love of faithful friends.

Tears of mixed emotions:
Sincere fondness and joy in reunion,
Heartfelt sorrow in parting.
The strange space of time and distance
Detracts not from the true bond of friends.
