Friends at first sight
if I’m speaking honestly
Spending our free time playing tag
Our moms would holler from across the park
That it was time to go and to pack it up
As we grew older nothing really changed between us
People would say “oh, they’re together”
When they would see us walking down the street;
On a hot day to buy ice cream.
I didn’t see that happening
While you grew taller and muscular
I just saw the same old boy who ate dirt
Friends that is what I thought we were
Then came a day when you went away
I lost my mind for a little bit
Twenty years later here we are
At the same old playground
Watching our kids play together like we once did
You are a widower and I a divorcee
Who would have thought we would meet again?
This time things have changed
You are no longer the boy who ate dirt.
