Special Friend Poem

Fourteen years ago, a good friend and I became separated due to uncontrollable circumstances. This poem is about the experience of searching for a special person and the day of finding them.

Once And Now

© Mike Critchfield
As a cloud wafting through the sky,
Blowing with the wind,
Never quite complete in form,
Ever sought, ever evading.

Gust after gust reforming, renewed,
Sometimes to dissolve away.
Then again to be reborn,
In a completely different view.

When finally the formation full,
The shape and lovely hue,
And sweet rain from it fall,
In a promise of sunlight anew.
