Friend

It has been a while since he called And I miss him deeply Long to hear his voice His casual remarks on how unsociable I am I miss him dearly We weren’t thick as thieves But we did share an easy laugh Comfortable silent and idle chit chat I long for the days when business brought us together Days when he was no more than a stroll away Days when we chatted, sitting side by side And I marvelled at the easy way he lives his life freely I wish he calls more I wish my wounded ego will heal From missed called unreturned And hope that pride won’t stop me from calling him Never properly learned the etiquette of friendship As a child, I often wandered and played alone Teenage years weren’t much different Now I wonder, why should adulthood be any different? But still I miss him Missing the company we once shared The easy way we chit chat idly The feeling of knowing I am his friend I truly miss you And I have no doubt that we are still friend No doubt whatsoever But I just wished that we are thick as thieves
