Old friend.

Setting down at the table

Your voice is unfamiliar.

A thin and tinny rasp,

No longer that reassuring, thuddy timbre.

I can see the crack,

Your face the same but lined.

Closer still, the signs suggest not long now.

Let us enjoy the patterns of life

We’ve shared

Before they break.

One thought on “Old friend.
