A letter from a dear friend

I opened your letter today,
and you sat in the armchair
beside me, cup of tea in hand,
as we gossiped like two old women.
Of mutual friends, and Molly,
of dreams and fears and life,
and all the while, we laughed,
and prattled on as only
two long standing friends can do.
When I reached the letter's end,
I was quite surprised to find
myself alone, as at the start,
only the memory of your smile
and your words to remind me of
all we had said.
