Poem: Old Friend

Old Friend

Comfortable seat by the window
Back in a familiar old friend
When the music was suddenly silenced
A wonderful world seemed to end

Today I felt drawn by a purpose
Rediscovering a place once called home
And the environs are unquestionably fitting
Filled with memories I am less all alone

Dancing visions of the songs once performed here
And this poet dispensed many a verse
Hours spent inside pleasant surroundings
Finding friends, old and new, to converse

Lean back in this chair by the window
The spot I would find near the door
There are times you step back to remember
And you love that you’d been all the more
