I love you friend.

I love you in words I’ll never send

I love you with prayers and wishes and worries

never spoken and never shared.

I am mute if I am scared

if I am beaten back by ghosts

I need you to know I

love you friend

These are words you’ll have to trust

every time that I’m not there

Will you shrug and guess

decide that I don’t care

so missing are my attempts

to prove you wrong?

Whatever you  have heard

it isn’t true

I love you friend.
