from lower case to lower case
     i greet you
a friend you have been
     and i expect will remain

and yes, i do understand
     how i can be small
           but YOU can be huge
        ... or at least all caps

           a secret - from me to you
i've been told we don't quite disappear
     completely
if we have true friends
     they can still see us
           though they will see the diminutive case
           and understand
     it just won’t matter
  you know ...
    ... they won't go into all cap mode ...
