We Two Aged Friends

We two aged friends were caught today, By shared glance. Words I could not say entranced. Not you, new friends looked on, As old friends spoke. The grey false dawn Broke thoughts while round us sunset played Once enemies trapped in the fray, Alike, but souls between us lay, When we our disparate colours donned. We two aged friends. Freed, parted, only you could pray Cold comfort: if we’d met halfway Then emptiness would be foregone, Time would let quarrels be withdrawn. You loved not, yet this eve you stayed. We two aged friends.

    Loved this poem. This year my wife lost an aged friend. They had stayed close across the miles for 40 years. Congratulations.

    Thank you so much for that constructive feedback! I am very honoured that you chose my poem as the winner of your contest. I feel a bit stupid for leaving out the line, but I don't know if I'll add it back in. Honestly I am a bit afraid to mess it up now.
