I’ll wait for you here
With this old, glowing lantern
And undying hope

This was written for a dear friend whose birthday is today. I miss him. It’s been a long time since we last communicated. I’ve feared that maybe he succumbed to a serious illness, and I have tried to contact him in several ways in this time, but I’ve had no response in about two years. I think about him and pray for him every day. I still hold on to my hope that he’s alive and well, though, and I am trying new ways to search for him.
Ray, this is for you. I miss you so much. I hope you’re well. I hope we can talk again someday.
