Missing friend


There’s the close friend you thought you had

But their congenial nature has slipped at this time

You can’t make head nor tail of their missing chime


They have withdrawn their social side

Crawled into a ball of their own making

No knocks at the door – all former texts forsaking


You try to make the contact – missing their craic

But no power in mobiles – no sight or sound

No splash in their swimming pool – maybe they’ve drowned?


Missing friend – missing your friend

Will they ever appear again in their old-fashioned way

Or is this it – gone with nothing more to say?
