A Small Chocolate Stain

A Small Chocolate Stain

A Poem by Andrew

This is about a friend I met on a weeklong trip to DC She has an amazing story & one of the things that reminds me of that week & her is a small chocolate stain on the right cuff of my dress shirt.

A small chocolate stain the size of my thumb,
peeks out with the movement of my outstretched arm.

And every time I see that stain,
I'm instantly reminded of joy,
and pain.

The senate basement coffee shop;
a welcome rest after we'd walked alot.
Warm chocolate croissant,
large foamy drink.
Thiry minutes to sit, talk
and think.

You taught me about life,
not to complain.
And how to find joy
in all of your pain.

I told you that day I'd remember your name,
your face,
your laugh, 
your joy and fame.

Now every time I wear this shirt
I look down at that stain and smirk.
I wonder where you are
and how you've been.
If I'll ever walk with you again.

A small chocolate stain,
inside the wrist;
fades away until my sleeve is lightly kissed
with a hint of brown.
Still, every time that I look down,
I wish that you could be around.
