Lost

I lost a friend today. 

In a most unusual way.

His friendship I never pursued.

It was one I assumed would be renewed

His smile was kind and always around

Now that smile will no longer be found

He was my age, with a happy family

Young kids, a wife and a home where we would all care to be

I will miss him, this friend I never really knew

Never took the time because the hours seemed few

The hurried pace I always had never stopping long enough

To have that cup of coffee or lunch seemed too abrupt

Take the time to treasure all those people in your life

The ones who make you smile and bring a little spice

Because it is true what the philosophers tell us

Carpe Diem my friend, what we had must be enough
