To a Friend

I think sometimes about the value of another human. Why are we really good? What have you loved? What will you give to the world? And in the warmest light I see a few souls- a few paths that I’ve had the joy of crossing. 

You are the best friend I’ve ever had. We sit in your idling car as you mention the countdown- 13 days. It always seems like there’s not enough time with you.

I’m fortunate to be able to love you. I’m happy that I’ve shared some of my happiest times with you. 

If I was blind to everything but people’s light, the good they offered to the world, I would see you glowing in a crowded city. I’d find my way to you.

Our lives are too big for us to worry about small things like distance or time. It’ll be too much of an adventure to stop and worry. 

I’m fortunate to have spent the last year and a half being your friend. I’m happy there’s a lifetime to go.
