Those Shades Looked Better on You


Your smile that day was the last,
when those shades looked better on you.
This the chance?
Sun high, mid-afternoon,
like yesterday,
memorial to me.

Funny, we talked longer which was unlike us,
the hint?

A stride from you taken, farewell implied,
it felt no different,
only to you, it was.

My goodbye changed forever,
when those shades looked better on you.

    1. Ah, thanks, friend. It was a pair of shades that I had that he liked. So, that day I gave them to him before I left for university. A few days later, he took his own life. Glad you went for the read.
