While Celebrating A Friend’s Birthday (poem)

0

 

so turns another night to morn

but what night!

i sit alone     

and yet my thoughts are drifting

far over mellow city lights

that lend their glow to silent vigil

with hidden stars and moon

sky shares my loneliness

from parting far too soon

it seems

though miles away you be

you’ll always be beside me

no other thoughts dare hover near

they know they merit no attention

not much ado they matter

but night!

time flies so quickly when you’re around

so slowly when you’re gone

if only time would share my plight

and linger longer when we’re together

not much is there that i can do

to hasten the minutes or still the seconds

what more is there to seek

but wait until

the days bring us yet closer?
