Title: Those High Places

He spoke of those high places
once in a while. Short words.
No detail.
A facial tension told
of re-lived camaraderie, courage;
remembrance of missed friends.

In later years - when unaware tears
would fall - deep tears -
I knew to stay away.
Comfort was no cure.
I had no words
to ease the essence of those moments.

He has joined them now,
those comrades - airborne few
forever soaring
those high places,
leaving an imprint on the sky
that will stay forever.
