I was visited
by a dear and long-time friend

For fifteen years we haven’t met
And still, it felt like
just the other day

We vowed it won’t take long to meet again


the reason we connected
was his mother’s recent passing

With all our parents gone
it falls on us

to reinforce the bonds

learn how we’ve grown
what we accomplished
where we failed

going forward
make some plans
carry them through

be there

fill the time with fun and laughter
share the load
support each other

until we pass
like the ones
before us
