Thinking of a Friend

I was thinking of a friend today
one I knew at some time
perhaps a decade or two ago
and i wanted to pray
to take her pain away
If my prayers could
change the world
then surely I would
start right here
part the clouds
to let the sun rays in
as only her smile can
she lights the room
with one brief glance, this one
If only my prayers could
reach the stars
and go beyond
then surely the lightness of being
could be with us all

The things in between

Careful of him
thoughtless silence
what a person really is
slowly revealed
a gradual distancing
from what is
from what was
other things that
come to pass
gradually erase in time
the mark of feelings
and what was
can never be again
another will take its place
or maybe not
there are too many
in between
