To a long-lost friend

Your words

Your thoughts

Came winging through the air

To me today

So many years

After

So many days and hours

Since last we spoke.

It seems forever

A dream

A sliver of time

That somehow slipped by.

Once, we laughed and sang

We ranted and cried

And danced

Into the morning light

Dragged our feet down

Cobbled streets

Watched as our breath

Escaped like wisps on the wind.

Little did we know then

That we too

Would one day blow

Away.

Daily prompt: October 16th is officially declared “Person X Day” — and you get to pick Person X. Tell us about someone who deserves to be commemorated.
