Goodbye To My Boat

I miss you so

when you are gone 

I cling to the memories 

of laughter

of times left untarnished 

by falling out 

it wasn’t quick 

or all at once 

I’ve gradually floated away

while you stayed at the dock

our boats 

who once collided

are being carried away

I drift 

until you are a dot

on the horizon 

your features blurred 

by the distance

your face 

once familiar 

is now unfamiliar 

strange 

I don’t know you

not anymore
