Dear Friend,

We know each other in crisp fall air,
We know each other in sips.
We know each other within the sync of steam,
Within the movement of our lips.

There comes a time when all we need
Is the comfort of this that we know.
The occupied space of a subtle hand,
A whisper that settles the soul.

You are a song, a secret, a puzzle, a screamโ€”
the joke from my book,
my unfocused look,
my silent epiphany.

You are my friendโ€”
A symbol of what appears without asking.
I didnโ€™t ask for this blessing.
There is no need.
You are a poem to welcome the afternoon.
