Costa Rica Meet Up

As if in slow motion
I stand in our chilled hotel room
Open the door to the warm outside
My friend stands there
Her back to me

The resort behind her
Looks like a sea turtle
Floating in the ocean
Inviting us to the unknown

So slowly in my mind
Watching a friend turn around
Four years since I last saw her

Routine has seasoned our tender hearts
Work has levied its heavy tolls

Here in the warm tropical sun
Where the air softens the crust from the time that passed
Our smiles come together
We meet again
A world away
From our last meeting

Hello there
Hello there
The years are gone in these two greetings
