Dear Friend

Written by: wayland bunch

We had only recently met
 It seems I've known you more
 Your mark already set
 Your presence reaching my core
 
The time we share always a joy
 My faith in friendship renewed
 I covet like a child with a toy
 Or money to the shrewd
 
Each absence gives time to reflect
 What direction will this take
 A bond of understanding and respect
 Kindness for the very sake
 
Way too soon to know what will pass
 But I enjoy all sand in the hour-glass
