Old friend, We were like peas in a pod. Do you remember?
Building dens in your parents living room, the one for best Searching for El Dorado and the Lost Cities of Gold Shuffling autumn leaves down the Cricket Path.
And the dinner ladies at school who made us eat Different food because We always asked for the same.
And the way our friends teased us and said we were “boyfriend” and “girlfriend,” which Made me embarrassed but happy at the same time, and
Then I lost you.
Years later we met again Our friends said it was destiny Like some stupid movie, but
It wasn’t The right time
And life moves on.
This was all a long, long time ago But I still remember That date.
Happy Birthday, old friend.
