For Ronan, for 25 years.
25 years ago
On the concourse of UCD
Or hanging in the students union
We were arrogant and lost
In impossible measures
Transparent in our voices
Ideals worn with cynical pride
Titling at dragons and chasing dreams
Angst and alcohol, side by side
25 years ago,
you became a sentinel in my life
prompting me when I stumbled
one of the foundations
of who I am.
We have both made our journeys
In miles, in thought, in dream or deed
Each one ending in our reunion
Friendship it seems, is our only need.
