one year apart

Written by: John Kriticos

One Year Apart

One year apart is ages
Contact comes and goes
Understanding comes in stages
As people age and grow

There are some ties that seem to break
But thoughts they cannot cease
For on the day that you were born
The fabric of our lives was creased

Pranks and Sabbath nights
We knew it would not last
Innocence is just a word
That now lives in our past

One hemisphere to another
I miss you all the time
Two brothers from one mother
Wounds will heal in time

A ticket is expensive
But worth it to be sure
Understanding’s comprehensive
You’ll have to find your cure

For now I leave it open
There are things you have to do
When you feel like you’re not coping
Know that I’ll be there for you
