Love Letters From an Old Friend

There’s not going to be any mail today.
Why? Because it’s a holiday.
No love letter from far away.
My friend used to live up the corner
and around the bend.
I have memories of when we walked
hand in hand, planning
our future in a distant land.
The memories fade into the background
for another day.
Time and distance had the final say.
