“Note to a Random Friend”

If there’s ever any certain truth
we can all rely upon out there,
it is this, and we all know it:
The human heart is such an inconstant
and unreliable organ. It wants one thing
one moment, and another thing the next.
It is sure of one thing one minute,
and another thing the next.
And so on, you know how it goes.
So I simply want to send you this note,
dear friend, that we may not remain friends
forevermore. I may or may not be here
ten years or ten minutes from now
and you may not be here in the future,
near or far, either. So let us all have
stolid hearts for life, as the cliche goes,
is like a river that flows ever onward
no matter what happens. But let us still
hope for the best and not be cynics.
