Many moons have gone by since our childhood
Too many days and nights to count
Too many years have come and gone
Yet the nostalgia of those years I cannot surmount.
We shared the best years of our lives
And despite the dark nebula
For me it will always be the golden era
I close my eyes and speak to her
It helps me align my heart and thoughts
For every now and then we talk
We share a bond which can't be broke....
I remember the first day I saw you
Swinging wildly from a tree
I envied how you were so wild and care free
We became two peas under the breast of spring
There was so much you didn't want me to see
Despite your strong demeanor,
There was so much you hid.
I remember when I pleaded over a stupid game
I remember repeating over and over "pretty please"
We were just kids playing yet tears started to flow
There was so much about you, I didn't know.
I confided so much about my troubles and pain
Never did I stop to ask about the secrets you kept
Would you have told me then?
Perhaps my questioning would have been in vain.
I remember clearly when I asked why you hated the word
"Tell me who used it so much, that you can't stand its song"
"I did, and it meant nothing. It was an empty plea"
"There is nothing you can do, just promise me to live!"
I was young then, but my heart understood
She was as strong and fragile
Brave and vulnerable all at once
She was the girl who although broken, would still dance.
I miss the way we were
She would make me believe in magick
Her words were to me as intoxicating as wine
Which I would drink and drink as we lay by the riverbank
To be strong is matter of choice, she would say
"I come from another world"
"A place where no pain can touch me"
"A place where I belong".
A woman she is now,
Blossoming despite the dirty soil she grew on
She now uses paper and pen
To immortalize those who caused her pain
She now glows with strength
Yet I know somewhere remains a fragile girl.
I hope she never gives up the fight
I hope her heart still loves with all its might
I wish for her nothing but the best
For there are heavy gold tears locked within her chest.
Despite the years I still remember her scent
Our lives forever intertwined ....
For childhood friendships despite their time
Remain with us for a lifetime.
