I miss you, and I'm afraid to ask
Where you've gone, where you've been,
How you are, and most of all, if you still are-
I fear the answer most, that doesn't come,
The reply that never arrives:
Bravery was never my forte.
But I wanted to say I miss you
And that I imagine you doing well-
Because that's the only vision I can withstand.
I wish I were the kind could shore up another,
Be their rock and guide, through stormy days.
Unfortunately, I am only that one who stays quietly faithful
In the inner heart, till the very end.
But I can't imagine there being an end to you
Or of that vision that you are the only container of
Ever met with, in my lifetime of knowing.
So I will only say, I wish you well, forever
Come what may, and hope that we will meet again-
Some other, better day.
To my friend, whether in darkness or or in light. ;)
