Fledglings

Some days are long while others fly

some people stay and some pass by

some watch like strangers, fleeting and alone,

you showed me this it made me sad

that what I miss I’ve never had

how can we miss the things we’ve never known?

 

Our days were long though time was short

dreams came true or so I thought

we watched like fledglings, certain we could fly,

but you soared higher than I dared

as you took wing I stopped and stared

you never paused, you never wondered why.

 

And on your birthday absent friend

I bought a card I couldn’t send

I counted days, a tally on my wall,

but I was strong and you grew frail

as days grow long the memories fail

now I don’t stop to think of you at all.
