Hello old friends
Once upon a time we were so close
So close we were as one
Bringing others in, to be even closer then close.
With a welcome mat before our feet, nothing but closer was the only option.
Why were we so welcoming ?
Or was the loneliness that has us begging for people to come run through us?
While we are face to face though and as we see our then so vividly I want to apologize...
Apologize for the bumps and the bruises.
The pain that I inflicted on you as I welcomed the wary.
I didn’t put you into consideration, hell I assumed you liked it...or just told myself that to feed my hunger.
Without a choice though.. you took it like a trooper.
You left the lost so envious of the unconditional stance we had, you and i.
But now , To I see you so fresh and standing tall...l smile.
You’re working with the team - mind body and soul and for that I thank you.
Thank you for sending the message of hope to all that needed to know -
Thank you for not giving up on me as much as I filled you with filthy and unnecessary toxic everything... sigh.
My idea, my wants and false hopes and my lost got lost in translation
And only left you grasping for air.
I see you now smiling and my smile follows.
And my body stands tall for the you you are. Then and now.
