In Between

“This poem is dedicated to a Law School classmate 
who left without knowing why. It was my cowardice
and selfishness that everything was left “in between””

In Between

It wasn’t a story			
It wasn’t a tale				
In between, sweet memories		
Linger on and stay			

It wasn’t profound			
It wasn’t on the surface			
In between, reticence abound		
Face to face					

It wasn’t courtship
It wasn’t acquaintance				
In between, just friendship				
Each keeps a distance				

It wasn’t hot
It wasn’t cold
In between, steely hearts
Nothing unfold

Hope it wasn’t goodbye 
But just a respite
In between, no words suffice
For any would deride

Wherever you may be
Hope time passes warm and calm
In between, parted by the sea
I longed for your open arms
