ode to you

up or down
right or left
i walk.

i
am
climbing
up way too
fast. too steep.
i am walking on the
back of my hand. treading
slowly, slowly treading. wandering
aimlessly.
there it is.
the house i know
all too well.

without seeing,
i sense it. i sense
the people who inhibit it
despite the reality
they are
far, far
away.

it pains me to think about it.
my dear you are a godsend
i would be nowhere
without you.
this is my
ode to
you.

how i miss that face.
how i miss that family.
how i miss the adventure.
how i miss you.
this is my
ode to
you.
regardless of this
this reality i seem to
face, i know that we are
together forever, despite
the distance we are sure to
face. because you will forever
be in my heart.
dear friend
this is my
ode to
you.
