OLD FRIENDS

OLD FRIENDS
Copyright 2013 by Norris Trimm

If I were twenty years younger
and you were twenty years plus
two birthday candles
would separate us

What's a few years
between old friends
that's all I'm
asking  you

You could roller skate
while I warm the bench
watch you do flips
while you watch me flinch

What's a few years
between old friends
that's all I'm
asking you

Reincarnation
that would be fine
still my teeth would be gone
and so would my mind

What's a few years
between old friends
that's all I'm
asking you
