Friends can burst into your life
as colorful and loud as an explosion of fireworks,
But sometimes a friend can creep into your life
so peaceful and unassuming
that it is not until they have disappeared
that you comprehend how intensely you miss them,
how you have come to rely on them,
how much you yearn to hear their friendly hello,
and how you regret that you never told them
how special they were before they vanished.
Where have you gone my friend?
Come back into my life again,
I feel lost and alone without you.
