Remember then,
Days in the hot sun
Always having fun
Going for a ride
Letting the bike glide
Biking, sledding,
Swimming, swinging,

Remember then,
Dreaming of when
Our childhood fears
Would be gone with the years
Now we look at the past
Wondering why it didn't last

Days of old
Never to be sold
Signs of change
Widely range
Moving away
No more play


Friends forever
Talk almost never
Through the years,
Our lives shift gears


Laughter, smiles,
Fears, miles,
Distant souls
Drifting goals
Friendship the art
Connects our hearts
Now that it is when
We dream of Then
