My dear citymate (Poem)

my dear citymate

We walk different paths
and live in the same city.
We pass by the same places,
lost within, in a sea of faces.

Imprisoned by the same rain,
we embrace the same seasons.
Sometimes we feel sad,
and anxious for the same reasons.

You said you are going far away,
to live in a different city.
And now my heart feels heavy.
Why?

Written: Friday, July 2, 2021, a rainy afternoon.
