you may not know this, brother,
Separated by distance
Though we be
And perhaps even
in everyday speak
15 years or so have passed
Since our first and last
Time smudges memories slowly
I cannot exactly recall
What we spoke of
I remember your smile
And your slooooow Jamaican drawl
And the feeling I’ve found
A friend for life
In some
Faraway place

Though I may never see you  again

you are in my heart, forever,
My friend
