A Friend Apart

Poem By Pedro Nuno Dias

A friend I can not hug,
a friend I can not touch,
a friend I can not see smile
unless in frozen stills of time.

A friend that listens with eyes,
a friend that talks with fingers,
a friend that lets you glimpse its heart
from a thousand miles apart.

Such a feeble sustenance
for such a needed substance.
As a fire needs wood,
so does one needs friends.

But how can fire two twigs apart burn
without no space across to run?
