a letter

Familiar Stranger


Dear stranger,


How are you? 
Me, I couldn't be better,

   considering the
   storm that ripped me to
    a thousand pieces.

Try hard as I could,
I can't conjure your
    image anymore.

Not so long gone, I
   fought for sanity,
   swimming back to the
   distant  shores.
The storm of lukewarm feelings,

   pushed me further into seas.
So I shut my thoughts,
    as I shut my world.
When my mind opened,
    you were a stranger.
My heart recognized
    you from a far past.
A familiar face,
     familiar stranger.
 Someone I once loved...

As I sit in the evening. The moon
brightly shining. A warm breeze
gently blowing. Blowing memories
of someone...

My mind wanders back to another
time and place. To a small island
nation. To someone I hold as a
dear friend.

Thinking, what are you doing tonight?
Wish I could be there with you. Sit,
talk, and laugh for awhile. Just enjoy
your company. Renew old conversations.
Maybe write some poetry together.

It is getting late here, and since I
can't be there. Good night, friend.
Perhaps another time. God bless.
