By Esteban Ramirez
Come in, dear friend,
mi casa es su casa.
Hug me with your warmth,
And I you with my arms.
Take a seat, dear friend,
warm the gray cushions of my sofa.
Place your arms on its armrests,
rest your feet on my wooden floor.
Your happiness fills me with joy,
your laughter echoes
through the chambers of my heart.
It’s good to see you, dear friend.
Like a stream, you flow
from the highest of hills,
through and around
the valleys and mountains.
How long has it been?
My newborn eyes,
my skateboard falls,
my father’s funeral?
We have so many memories.
You’re family to me.
Knowing what to say,
knowing exactly how to say it.
A full schedule awaits,
we’ll see friends and family,
a dog or two, gold finches flying high.
They all look forward to seeing you.
Before this night falls,
we’ll say goodbye and make plans
to see each other,
in the morning, dear friend.
