VERY NICE TO HAVE KNOWN YOU

VERY NICE TO HAVE KNOWN YOU

You’ve been my friend it seems from the beginning of time,

Where have the years gone since once we would laugh and run.

To the beach we traveled playing in the sand, waves at our feet,

Skateboards and Ice cream cones at a place we would meet.

Riding our bikes and messing around in the fields,

Basketball and flying kites, comic books under a tree.

We went to school and walked home together,

Swam in lakes, camped out under the stars.

Secrets we told that only we could know,

Friends from a long time ago, today we walk a little slow.

Very nice to have known you as today we still move along,

We sit here on this bench with memories of youth long ago.
