Friends gone by

Where did all of them go?

Friends, like time, gone by

Just like that

Weren’t they supposed to stick around?

You thought that, too!

A smile, a hello, a nod

An ally for life

And that one girl in that one class

Maybe more than an ally?

So many people doomed to the past

Fleeting memories today

Names that sometimes pop into the mind

Maybe dead, maybe alive

How many years have slipped away?

Can I grab just one and hold onto it

For more than just one day?

To remember all those yesterdays

And all those people

And the laughter

And the moments

Gone in a blink
