I found that photograph
you sent me
just before we met

you were sitting alone with a group of friends
turned away
from the man on your immediate left

and I wondered who he might have been
with his close cropped hair
and shadowy chin

though obviously I am older
in some ways
I think I look like him

he sat in close proximity
though to you he was quite unknown

in the vicinity of our undoing
we whispered on the telephone

I suffer no more the longing
to put right
wrongs of the past

all has been forgiven now

I see clearly
there can be peace at last
