I embraced you In the hallway -How have you been? -I didn’t even recognize you! -You look great. -What’s new? We were both on our way somewhere else, Headed in different directions, Promising to catch up soon. I didn't get to tell you: I've made a place in my heart for your sadness. I make it a cup of hot tea every day, and serve it while whispering--hope. I love you so much.
