A chance meeting, a brief conversation



Aren’t you someone I used to know?

Yes, I am he,

Someone I used to be.


I Remember,

It was September,

Some place, Some years ago.

You and I were friends.


More, one might say.

But we had no time for love then.


And now?


Now there is no time for anything.


– Bruce Frankland McNichol  1923-1970, in loving remembrance



I got your message, and I trust you got away okay

Peculiar, how you came to mind tonight

Forty-seven years later

A lifetime, your lifetime, to the day

I’ll be along after a while
