Best Hug

I missed you, I really did

Things have gone too fast,

I can’t keep up with the speed.

 

I tried ignoring it, told myself to leave it be

Yet sadness enveloped me

The distance, so near yet so far hurts most

 

I missed our laughs, our jokes

Loud voices ringing

Disturbing some folks

But we go on anyway and let them know this friendship is strong

 

I hugged you, which I never did before

How could I?

When secretly I longed to be more than your friend

But the misery has been eating me up, I just had to do it

 

Took a lot of courage to come up and hug you

Told you how much I missed you

Guess it showed or perhaps even overflowed

since you hugged me right back

 

Glad to know our friendship persists

And that in your world I after all exist

I look forward to seeing you once more, my friend

Thank you for giving me

one of the best hugs in the world

Lately

I haven’t heard from you lately.

It’s been days, no weeks, since you came ’round.

What have you been doing lately?

What has kept you so busy?

Not a “hi” or” hello” or even the slightest clue

to where you are

or have been

 

I’ve missed you a lot lately

And I can’t believe you’re so dismissive

What has happened to you lately?

You have not told me anything

You’ve kept to yourself,

which is very unusual of you

 

What’s got you so caught up lately?

You’re physically here but your mind is far away

You stare into space

I know you have a problem

Lately, you have not told me

You’ve been distant

Am I not your best of all best friends?

 

I worry a lot about you lately

What has happened to you my friend?

What or who has done you ill?

Tell me your troubles,

I’d really like to know

I’d like to help and ease your pain

Whatever it might be

 

You haven’t picked up the phone lately

I’ve left hundreds of messages

You know I’d do anything to help you out

I hope I’d get the chance to talk to you

To comfort you

 

Let’s you and I talk, one of these days

since lately, I’ve missed your voice

Call me my friend, for I am here

for you, always
