In Honor of My Friend

where do we go from here?

it's been one year

but it's been five since we sat in the same room

you were my only family. the only one who kept in touch

no one speaks when a shadow is consumed by the sun

none of it makes sense

it never will

how i knew you'd go away

and acquire a tattoo

i thought i would have to kick someone's ass

instead i just watch the sky and ponder

is it okay to be okay? 

of course it is

of course i'll see you again

another time

another life

stardust connects over and over again

at least that's what i'd like to pretend

that's all i do anyway

dream a little dream into reality

be free friend

run with the wind

we'll meet up again
