To a friend

kushtrimthaqi

my friend,
when I get old…
(if, I have the privilege
to get old)
I would like to meet you.

on a Sunday morning
in the cobbled streets

or, at the cafeteria
in front of the mosque,
I would like to meet you.
And I would love
for you to ask me,
“Hi there, old friend,
how have you been?”

even if my memory betrays me

and I forget
who you have been;
even if I’m lost
in that vague space
of my empty mind;
I would love,
for you to stop me
and ask,
“Hi there, old friend…
how have you been?”

I know we’ve been congregating on Wednesdays to ogle the hotties for over a year, but everyone knows that FRIDAY is the most anticipated day of the week. So let’s celebrate them. With giveaways!

There’s a story behind this first giveaway, so bare with me while I indulge in an overabundance of words.

A very talented friend of mine (who also happens to be my most trusted beta reader) recently started a business making bridal bouquets and these ingenious little inventions called train loops for helping the bride manage the train of her gown. Recently, I was perusing her site on etsy.com–no I’m not getting married or anything–and saw that she made keychains as bridal party…
