A Friend of The Past


A Friend of The Past

            Once first

            Now last

            A kind you were

            Ridiculous but settled


            You par in light and dark

            Never sad

            But always glad

            Crazed as always


            More now than ever

            Beautiful in all ways  

            Given those long days

            Live with freedom


            Standing in aw

            Take advantage of those

            Who know not a mind of their own

            Forgive and forget


            A motto I regret

            For the past in my future

            You were always there

            Nothing now


            But a mere echo

            Great in sound

            Even when bound

            By my mind


            A Friend of the past, is all you are now
