"The Standard Letter"
Today I saw you for the first time.
It was the first time in a while.
You looked at me for a moment,
swiftly you ignored my presence,
you then looked away.
Last Friday I was driving.
I had not thought of you in a while.
Moments later you drive by,
you came from behind passing me side by side,
yet so far away.
On Thursday I had a dream.
It was the best dream in a while.
You were harsh at first.
Then you hugged me and smiled,
the morning came,
I woke and you went away again.
How many more times must I face you?
Yes I miss you, you were my friend.
I long for your forgiveness, but know it won't be there.
I lost you because I care,
I didn't know it was a crime,
You are so unfair.
Everyday I am punished.
For my soul you have lashed.
My heart has been bleeding,
and my spirit tortured daily.
How many more tricks must I turn,
Why are you so unfair?
All I want is to understand,
That is all I have ever wanted.
Why is there no mercy?
A merciless foe you have become.
Your heart is so cold now,
Life is truly unfair.
For now that is all I have to say.
Surely tomorrow next week or next month,
my heart will need say more.
But for now I will sign off,
The way I always have and always will,
Best wishes, love always, your friend.
