Childhood Friend

Remember days when we were young and sweet
When hide and seek would fill our afternoons
We’d hold our mother’s hand to cross the street
And we were still amazed by a full moon
When we still couldn’t climb the monkey bars
And tears would fill our eyes when we would fall
Those wounds from when we’d fall have still left scars
But you were there if you could hear my call
But times have changed and we have grown apart
And only waves and small talk are exchanged
We both know that our friendship won’t restart
And promises are broken, we are changed
And as the years go by these moments fade
And newer bonds have put ours in the shade.
