 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan

Received an e-mail from a best friend
His way of saying I was always his
The timing was great
At the High school graduation yesterday
Unrelated, my son gave a message to his son,
"You can look around you at all your classmates.
This well probably be in ten years from now
The last time you will see any of them but
family and a few best friends. Most will move on."
He then mentioned two of his friends from high school
I looked back at my own life after sixty years
The friend who sent me the e-mail from sports
We graduated from different schools but he was
sixteen the day I met him and on a sport team
My other best friendship started in the second grade
Sure there are new friends but they come and go too.
Ryan mentioned Wyatt had come up to him
Wyatt and Ryan started hockey as kids together
But each went on to play for different teams
"Is Wyatt graduating with you--?"
"No, his parents and Wyatt came to watch me graduate."
"Make sure you let him know your feelings."
"He has let you know you are a longtime friendship."
