Friends For keeps?
Thinking of my old friend from my past and the friendship that
We thought would last, through leaving school,
and making new lives of our own.
Letters to each other we would send
so that our friendship would never end
but somewhere there along the line
you went your way,
and I went mine.
The years went by and we lost touch
What became of the friendship
That meant so much?
I remember when, back in school
We'd have a laugh and play the fool.
We always had too much to say
And couldn't wait for another day.
We'd say goodbye and then once home
Talk for hours on the phone
Of boyfriends old, and boyfriends new
And if we didn't have one what would we do?
We shared every secret under the sun
Some we still would tell no one.
So why did we drift so far apart?
Are we still best friends in our hearts?
Finally, we've met again
Older and wiser than were then
We gossipped and laughed of times gone by
Oh but it's true that time does fly.
As we hug each other as we leave
There's one thing we both believe
The roots of best friends go down deep
And we will always be, "Friends for keeps."
