Long Lost by Dan Slaten
I saw you from a distance, drifting in and out of the crowd like a ghost. You didn’t see me, or you didn’t recognize me. It’s the same either way. Time passes. People change. In your case time has been kind. You look substantially the same. Me? Not so much. Less hair on top, more weight below. The younger versions of ourselves would have laughed at my appearance. But it is what it is. Perhaps it’s better that you didn’t see me. I’d like to think you will always think fondly of me and remember me the way I was.
