Old Friends!

Posted by CFMBabs , 27 January 2009 · 758 views

I opened my mailbox and what did I see
A face I once knew - a friend of the family
It's been so long since we last met
Had such great times you never forget
Had such fun and our kids have grown
My how those years have simply flown

We travelled for miles each weekend free
Loaded cars with kids, daft were we
Pulling a trailer behind in which to live
Not a care in the world we would give
Come hail or shine on a muddy site
With boots and raincoats through rain we'd fight

Many nights beside the fire
Planning our trips before we'd tire
And the very next day we'd up sticks and go
Ending up where we didn't know
With screaming kids and toilet trips
And filling their faces with fish and chips

The wine flowed free as the sun went down
Happy laughter in your dressing gown
And poor old Kate with her stuffy ways
Fell in the mud, in a tipsy haze
And the school teacher waits as the kids returned
With stories of weekends and what they had learned
For many had never seen the open sea
Or been on safari, sat outdoors with tea
We'd been up mountains and boats, on a train
And been round the hillside again and again

I'm meeting my friend this week you see
I can't wait to see her or her to see me
Can't wait to hug those children, teenagers now, oh my!
What memories linger and days you can't buy
I feel so excited and yet so full of regret
It's taken so long to have finally met.
10 years older --- Oh I'd rather forget!
