THE SAME BENCH
As children, friends were we always hanging out,
In the park throwing a football, playing frisbee.
We were like most kids never worrying about the future,
We spent many Summers playing in the sun, running into the years.
There was a bench we would sit on after running around, made of wood,
Laughing and telling jokes, we were the best of friends until the sun set.
My friend went away, life moved on beyond those days, older we became,
As fate would have it we again found one another through the mysteries of life.
The magic of childhood goes away but I believe a piece of it is always there,
We walked and talked, back to the park too where we laughed, we sat on the same bench.
