Old Friends

February 13, 2012


“It's been a longtime,” he said,

As old shoulders leaned over the hearth,

And old eyes looked back to a time

When they kept secrets for God.


With words warm and a song sad

The flame flickered to a long ago wind.

It cast frail shadows on days too gone

Where memories are better spent left in silence.


A poet’s pen would mutter like a fool

If it knew the thoughts that were hidden.

They just lingered in the fire of their eyes.

Yes, it has been a long time.
