Interaction With An Old Friend


I ran into an old friend
Someone I hadn't seen in years...
At my favorite cafe
He just happen to be passing by

He joined me
And we caught up on life
On times long gone
And days that were good...
When we were both much younger
And
Thought we understood
The meaning of life
The meaning of time
Where did his life take him
Where did mine...

He told me
I was
A bag of contradictions...
A man thinks he knows what he's getting
When you walk into a room
But
After an interaction with you
You aren't all that you seem
You're more
Far more
And when you leave
You leave a man thinking
About you
Long after
You have left him, left the room...

I laughed
I tilted my head and smiled
But,
You've known me for years now
I can't be as confusing as I once was....
Am I that complicated to understand...

Not complicated per se..
More
Always interesting...

I thought about this 'compliment'
I wondered if it were true
He had nothing to gain from it
He knew
I guess he also had nothing to loose

I appreciated his honestly
Told him he gave me too much credit

He laughed
As if he knew something
And, I didn't have a clue...

Now I was the one thinking..
Wondering if he was telling the truth...
What woman doesn't want to be thought about...

He said I lingered
Like great French perfume...

I laughed as I left him
Told him it was good seeing him
After all these years...
Gave him a hug
And said,
Well,
I hope to see you soon...

Knowing how time
Has a way of flying by
And, it may be weeks or months or years..
Who knows how many moons..
It was good to see an old friend
Nice to know
He'd be thinking of our conversation
Long after I left the room..
