Who we were before

Friends forever

we’d solemnly swear

a week went by

a month, a year

Good friends became “people”

just “people we know”

and one day it was time

for our friendship, too, to go

Drifting away over

such a long time

never quite noticed

the downwards climb

Away from

who we were before

until one day at a fair

I saw

You and remembered

who we used to be

happy and friendly

young and free

But now that we’re walking

the uneven path

of growing up

smiles never last.
