Moonlight Dancing

A friend, from my wayward past, died on this day 3 years ago. He’d been sick for a long while. He was stubborn, not leaving until he was damn good and ready. Today, I am one year older than he was when he died.

Our friends give us gifts we don’t even know we want. He confirmed the change in me.

  1. Happy Birthday. It is interesting how we receive gifts from such circumstances. I hope you have a fine day.

    I’m sorry for your loss. For me, when I’m informed of a loss from my past, sometimes it’s a very odd feeling to be the one that survived. (Does that make sense?)

    King Harvest! OMG! What a fun, good-times, laid-back song you chose to pair with your words! I love it!

      I think of my friend often and on my birthday which oddly coincides with his untimely departure. I was a wild child in my youth and he was often critical BUT he was generous in his approval when I settled down. Like you, I wonder how I managed to scrape through rather than others. We were so lucky when we were young we had fun and it was laid back.
