Ephemeron

People pass by,
nod their heads and
parcel half-a-thought.

People walk in
and say a few words
behind a paranoid grin.

People leave
with only a full stomach
that remembers.

People pass by
and are stunned
that their friend is gone.

    So true, Jim: This really struck home as a few of my friends have passed on and I now wish I had gotten together with them more often. Thanks for a meaningful poem. SuZ
