I once had a friend, a soulmate
with whom I walked a long lovely patch of life .
We parted ways , as time went by....
rather abrutly....still don't know why....
Days went by and weeks rushed,
And before I know it, a year was gone.
And I never saw my friend again.
Years rolled on....
and all I had was memories bright,
refusing to be worn
by the tides of time.
Every day as I went to bed
I resolved to call my friend the very next day,
But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,
And distance between us grows and grows.
Today I am a lonely soul
reaching out and crying in vain....
Wish I had seized the day
and before a friend became a stranger,
wish I had made that call
and saved myself all this pain.
