How Have You Been

How Have You Been short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

I followed your trace in this city
thinking about how lonely you felt without me
I visited all the places in your photos
everything was so familiar except the lack of you

Would you appear all of a sudden
in the cafe around the corner of a nice pattern
I would greet you if so with a hearty smile
and talk with you about our lives for a while

How eager am I to meet you just one more time
to see those changes you have made behind
All I want to say is ask you just one thing
How Have You Been
