Goodbye Old Friend

I wrote this after meeting with an old friend that I hadn't seen or communicated with for over 25 years. Strangely we haven't communicated since either. Yet somehow the friendship still exists and remains ever fresh in my heart.


Hello, old friend. Never thought I’d ever see you again

You reached out from the past
to prove that friendship can last

Hello, old friend


Time goes by in the blink of an eye, lifetimes hurtle past

Tomorrows turn to yesterdays, slipping through my grasp


So many years. Slip off our hearts and disappear

After all that we’ve been through, how did I lose you?

For so many years


But in my dreams we’re still sixteen


Goodbye old friend. Will I ever see you again?

After all these years apart, we’re still joined at the heart

Goodbye old friend
