Parted ways

Dearest friend

Untravelable distances now
separate us from each other.

You went beyond the ocean,
you slipped behind the night.

No longer there where I
knew I could always find you.
Where you sang and laughed.

I know. You will never sink
You will never disappear.

Charts will not be needed
to find your way back
to my heart’s safe harbor.
A haven for your memories.

Travel safe, and return often
to my thoughts, where you
will always be welcomed
as the friend, you were to me.
