I ordered food while waiting for someone as planned
tapping fingers absent-mindedly on each hand.
Someone pulled me all of sudden
And hugged me tight as I realize it was my friend.
We greeted each other, faces smiling with joy
Recalling memories of our friendship no one else can destroy.
Giggling every now and then because of a flashback,
Our laughter filling the room, patting each other’s back.
Pausing for more words to say, our noise finally came to a stop
My companion turning serious which made my heart drop.
“Do you… do you feel better now?” I sat still.
With a lump in my throat, I managed to say: “pain takes time to heal”.
