Please Write

by Joan Serratelli

The last time he wrote
He was sick

He has not written
in ages

I need to know
that he is still
among the living

I never met him;
but he was a good friend
We shared the same physical
and we both wrote poetry

I cannot fathom
that he has vanished

He was just so alive
He made me laugh
he made me cry

He was a wonderful friend

He needs to write

I need to know
that he is doing well

A sentiment I'm sure many have felt from time to time, especially in the vast distances of the Internet, if not the outside world, no matter how close at times others seem. Well expressed Joan.
