Who you were

Missing Friend
(For Richard)

Twelve years have passed since we last spoke
Saw
Knew
Grew
Together.

I wonder who you have become
Wanted to be
Tried to be
Would have been
Who we would have been.

I wanted to grow with you
As my brother
My family
My friend
My mirror.

Now we seem lost
Untethered to all
We were
You in your life
A thousand miles away
And me in mine
Here

Many thoughts forged
Forgotten
Remembered of you
Who you were
To me

You, me
We are not even acquainted
Wishful words imagined memories
Lost to what said words were missed

I
Wish that we were still friends
And not pictures on a screen
That tell truths and lies all at the same time
Words and dots and pixels that separate
Our past and our present
