I thought about you today.
I heard that you had died but I wasn’t sure
So I rang your mobile phone and there was a generic response
It was so ‘not you’
So I rang your colleague and asked if you were still in the industry
He said that you had passed away.
I liked you
I didn’t know you well but I appreciated that you were interested in my opinion
We seemed to have a common understanding; a shared perspective
Or maybe that’s just what I tell myself
You never know when a conversation with a friend will be the last one you have.
Would I have acted differently had I known?
This is not what I would have wished for you
For what it’s worth, I wish you peace
Rest well my friend.
