haunting, smiling, optimism

dead friends, old friends,
never forgotten but rarely remembered

can you forgive me?
for the conversations we didn't have
for the moments passed in frivolity
when so much more needed to be said

i think of you now and then
see your smile or hear your voice
think of what you would have said
how brave you were

i think of you now, right now
can you forgive me for the silence
the truth that went unspoken
out of fear of losing you

now you are lost forever
unless i've misunderstood
and i hope i have

can i ever forgive myself
and should i?
