Poem - A Friend I Used to Know

A Friend I Used to Know

I saw a recent picture
on the internet
of a friend I haven’t seen
in years
at least ten years
since we were in college
on vacation with his family in Hawaii
he was holding his baby daughter
and smiling
so was his girl
it was the happiest I’d felt all day
because at least someone I knew
had made it
and was going to be
just fine.
