reunited friends

THERE WAS NO no rush of surprise or delight at seeing you;

rather normality stole in quietly and surrounded us.
The months without you simply slipped away –
surely you have always been here?
But as the day wore on I realised
the depth of my missing you –
the way your eyes never judge or condemn,
only listen – reacting to my words
with genuine celebration or grief –
and I breathed you in like
long forgotten air.
