Classmate

In the wispy glow of dusk
he came

mazing through years of husk
memory groped his name.

Then I remembered.

Though drew us apart fate
once we were very close

inseparable classmate!

Seemed so empty
even an hour without him
more together more the happy
we bonded too in dream.

Shared we two
same liking and taste
loved to do
living without the rest.

I have come to close a deal
in his eyes was sadness spread
hope you remember still
the promise we made.

I remembered.

when we last met
he said

let's seal this with trust
must come to meet his heart's pal
the one departing first.

read, read, read and read thousands time the great Rudyard Kipling
Mannnnnn! ! ! Talk about red faced straight face! Beautiful beautiful Kipling read.
That was a little tense though. So thankful for internet now.
Kipling's works showcase a genius for rhyme and meter that so effortlessly accentuate the colorful tales he tells. I will always consider him one of the finest architects of rhyming poetry.
nice and an interesting poem
