#30 A Poem-A-Day Challenge: You Move Me So...

If I never get
to spend real live in person in your face up close and personal time with you
beyond hello and how are you...

know that you have moved me so.

If I never get to sit across from you at a small table under a moonlight night
talking about the merits of The Black Panther Party
or How Affirmative Action destroyed our communities...

know that you have moved me so.

If I never get to drink bottles of wine (me drinking, not you so much) while you prepare
your signature steak and celebration explosion salad because sometimes I'm vegan and sometimes I'm not...

know that you have moved me so.

If I never get to show you New Haven and Yale or
buy you a burger at Louis' Lunch or "REAL" pizza from
Pepe's
Sally's
Modern...

know that you have moved me so.

If I never get to see your dreams come true
watch you take vows and jump the broom... I hear three is the charm
or celebrate your books on bestsellers lists...

know that you have moved me so.

If I never get to hear you recite tragically insincere poetry
mocking my poets heart and soul causing me to fall to the ground weeping in a heap of
rose watered tears...

know that you have moved me so.

You have without a doubt and without question made my life nicer.
Happy Birthday Beloved Friend
