Poems and Poetry

Many Years | A Poem by Guy Farmer

Many years spent together.
Many conversations and the
Shared, familiar laughter of
Congenial experience.
Harmonious chatter,
Joyful exchanges.

Always there for me.
Always understanding what I was
Thinking or saying. Always talking;
That’s how I returned the favor.
Now I make up stories about
How you were because I
Never asked or listened.
