Friendship

The gift is offered for a time
  then gone away
People change, grow,
  love more fully
Move to another place
  and good byes are said
Promises to keep in touch
  and this world allows it
Never the same
  as when close 
Face to face
  traveling with hands held
This special place
  is now recreated
Or the whole is left gapping
  wide because good byes 
Were never said and meant
  or we were never honest 
Good luck
  ride the road anew
Travel the pathways
  of a new adventure in love.
