Emoji

How long has it been
since last we spoke?
A year, a week, a decade
at most.
I remember a time
when not a day passed by
without an emoji from you
or a simple sigh.
Hard to believe
that bond we once shared
disappeared as fast
as our fire flared.
I still think on us
time and again
and wonder where life
begins and ends
and I think in another life
we could have been
friends.
