Friday morning, up with the lark
Off I went to take a walk in the park!
The sun was up white and shining
On a clear crisp and bright morning!
“Trring trrring” went my faithful ol’ phone
” Hi, remember me ?” said a deep baritone!
“Who? What?? Where?” was all I could say
As a gleaming, speeding car made its way
Screeching to a halt, barely inches away..
I jumped ! And turned back to have my say!
The window rolled down, a face peered out
“You? Its really you?” I heard myself shout!
It had been ages,more than three odd years
Best buddy, shared words, laughter and tears..
All came rushing back, the heart was full
The eyes moist, but the smile was cheerful!
What a blessing is such a deep friendship
No name,no slot – just an abiding relationship!
To take off from where one had left
The years that passed one never felt.
We took a moment together in the park
Then the words began as we walked the talk
They tumbled one after the other in a great rush
And as our voices broke the peaceful hush,
We realized the years had never been
We were the same, when last had seen!
Wiser now, lined faces, crinkled and mellowed with age,
The bond grew stronger as we shared the same page.
Happy chatter in the car as we made our way home
Eager I was for my family to see and say “Welcome!”
“Good friends are like stars You may not always see them but you know they’re always there.“
