Link

You are a reminder.

We don’t converse for
almost a month and 
I’m calm, peaceful.

It’s been a while
so you contact me again.
I’m happy to hear from you.

Even as I write back
I remember someone else.
Four months and counting.

You and he overlapped a year
and you never knew each other.
Still, you’re a link to him.

Somehow it gives me comfort –
you, linked to someone else I knew
even when I don’t know him.
