Happy Birthday my Friend

It is a friend’s birthday today.
Happy Birthday.
A friend that I have not seen for a good while and that I truly cherish.
A friend that I miss of having close to me although our paths have not crossed for long.

I spoke to him on the phone.
He is well – well, sort of.
We spoke about our common experience/history.
We spoke about our lives.

We spoke about how things changed since we  saw each other.
We spoke about how things might be if we see each other.
We spoke about us, the we.
We spoke about him, the him.
And, we spoke about me.
I truly love you as a friend. Hope to see you soon.

Enjoy yourself.
