I was afraid I’d seen the last of you.

I was afraid that this time you had really gone.

That I had abandoned you for the last time.

That you were so disgusted with me.

That I was no longer worth your bother.

But I should have had more faith!

I should have remembered that you are a firm believer in ME!

You hadn’t gone at all!

You were just buried by events.

Smothered but not suffocated.

Not dead!

You snuck back upon me

in a series of unexpected decisions.

And here we are together again!

I feel elated and relieved that you survived.

I am proud to call you my friend.
