With a million miles between us and a pen within my hand
I write to you a letter, my friend in distant land.
I often wonder how you are and hope you're doing fine
I'll tell you that I miss you, dearest friend of mine.

The last time that I saw you was so very long ago
And I regret that night much more than you could ever know.
I had absolutely no idea that not once more would I see
Your face, and how was I to know that you would leave me?

I refused to make eye contact and to you I would not speak.
We haven't been together since that night that fateful week.
I miss you now so very much-will I see you again?
I'll have to find a way to cope without you until then.

Once again, my friend, I miss you, and I'm sorry for that night.
If I had known it was the last, I would not have tried to fight.
I guess I had to let you know that you are my best friend
And with these feelings in the open, I can now begin to mend.

Love, me

getting things out...even in writing is usually a good thing. I liked the rhyme and I liked the meter. Nice job.

Thanks INclan. I am glad you liked it! By the way, everyone, do you think I should add one more verse, or is it okay as is? I'm working on a few more lines and they aren't coming.

nice one, I think we all have people to whom we should write letters of apology to. This one fits me in a way!

Elizabeth, this is very touching ... does not need an additional verse ... but should you add one, well, I'm sure it will only get better ... thanks again

Pepper, Izzy, Dark Angel, and Traveler: a great big "thank you" to y'all for your comments. I think I will skip on that last verse, it's still not coming (darn ol' writer's block). I really appreciate your encouraging words. Thanks again!
