This is the first of my poetic duets with the very talented Jaded. Hope you enjoy.
There’s distance between us
But I still will call you friend
There’s hurt in your words
I wish that I could mend
The care I have for you, my friend
Can cover every mile
My goal remains the same each day:
Just to make you smile
Across the miles so far away
I have something that I must say.
I met you unexpectedly
through virtual reality.
So sudden that it came to be
how dear a friend you are to me.
Insomnia won the bitter fight
I settled in that fateful night.
What to read
how will I decide?
A blog inviting
Two brothers from my native state
and other stuph to which I could relate.
I read and commented
so nervous was I.
I never expected
one in word reply.
Down you swooped on wings of red
You stand by maize and blue
If I can put up with that from family
I can put up with it from you too
