I almost had you back for a day

I almost had you back for a day
You asked me if the book you received
was from me, Yes, Was it cruel of me
to remind you of me like that?
And you showed me two of the same books,
Have I sent you same book before?
No,you laughed, you bought it for yourself.
And we asked each other about our lives
tentatively, casually, as though the last month
had not ruptured us, and you made me
smile at the way our rhythm had not
quite changed, I am grateful that
you shared that with me, the snow
in Mussoorrie, giving me hope
that our friendship could still be salvaged;
I almost had you back for a day.
it meant the world to me.
