Stealing a few moments to dwell on ages ago
Remembering our amity, for the way it was
When we were younger, those carefree days
I could see in your eyes, you sensed the same
It was so easy to slip back into bittersweet memories

Riding shotgun in your car, music blaring loudly
Faces towards a sizzling summer afternoon
My only care was the burning of my bare feet
On a sunsoaked dash, hot enough to set ablaze
Just two souls that found friendship for awhile

Closure came with many conflicting feelings
I know that our lives have drifted far apart
It struck me me hard when I took one long look
Comparing boy to man, seeing that frequent smile
You wear now under an unfamiliar cowboy hat

As I go about my nightly chores I see you there
Riding on your horse for hours at a time
Visiting and reflecting on when youth was ours
And we were not scared of the future moving on
As it has now, twenty plus some years later.
