Farewell to a Friend

I bid adieu

To the friend I once knew

With a swift “Adios!”

And a glamorous toast.

 

I’ll wave and say “ciao”

Without knowing how

To say our final goodbye

Without a good cry.

 

So let’s make this fast

Held with memories that last

And say our concluding farewell

Before my eyes begin to swell.

Coffee With A Friend

“It’s so good to see you-

You look great!

More importantly, you look happy.”

You agree with a suspicious and silent nod

But a smile turns up the corners of your mouth

As you take a sip from your coffee

And the desirous heat from your mug

Accentuates your blushing cheeks

Instead of hiding them.

You take an exaggerated sigh in preparation

Then begin to tell me your latest story.
