Once friends, we faded apart.
I went on my way,
and you went about your business.
It didn’t seem strange at first;
e-mails and phone calls kept us in touch.
Then we vowed to find time for lunch.
It never seemed to happen:
kids, work, weather, and all kinds of little things.
Then we stopped calling with exciting news,
even though we thought about sharing.
Our lives drifted different directions,
and I wonder what you are doing today.
I’d call just to see, but I don’t want to intrude.
This is strange considering how close we were.
Once friends, we faded away.
