Friend

Standard

It’s been more than a year

since I’ve seen your face,

heard your voice

Rarely a day goes by

where something

doesn’t remind me

that I knew you

and you were special

The books you read

the things you loved

are all still here

Sometimes I smile,

sometimes I cry

Either way the hole

you once filled

remains empty

Despite the distance

of time passing

I still think of you

grateful for the chance

to call you a friend
