Long Time No See

Long Time No See short poem

Photo by Philippe Put

Alas! This distance call,
To a friend with love.
Though lost in time,
This time I find,
this friend of mine;
here in my mind,
the terrain of substitution
the land of freedom.
put in a place where love herds,
though lost, but live and in there dwell.
I’ve lost a friend who did no wrong
left so long
this lonely song
“Distance, carries a portion of love;
Time does the worse!
Winds of uncertainty, break its walls,
Negative co-incidence spoils it all!
But trust on love’s words
Builds the walls of love
stronger than before”

@lee_owen, it could be discerned from your arrangement that this piece may very well be a song.
It is not unusual for poems to be such. In fact, poems like the villanelle, madrigals and other variations are written for a melody.
