To The Girl Across The Street - Poem by Susan Lacovara
You were my very first friend
With sunlit yellow hair,
which directly complimented my dark mane
We were a pair, uniquely different...
but, oh so much alike
In our search for childhood adventures...
we forgot to count hours
and sang our way through summer days
in a harmony that, now, has spanned
almost half a century....
It has been you, all along
knows how to bring about my laughter...
You, who has remained loyal
in your acceptance of my every fault...
And I can still return
to the playground of yesterday
and find you as my companion,
Time has tamed us, just a little
Fate has brought about changes, unexpected...
Life has placed miles, but NEVER distance
between our everydays...
Where have the countless calendar days gone?
In my heart we will always be skipping
To the much loved 45's, from AM radio...
We'll pretend to be as grown up
as our older siblings
and share our dreams for the future,
while trying out the latest dance steps
stowed away, in each other's rooms
You went away, to become a wife and mother
(Something I am sure, your own mother applauds,
while sipping tea, with my mother, in heaven)
And I remain, on the Island of Long
not very far from where our friendship was forged...
Thinking sweetly, remembering kindly, missing always
The Girl Across The Street....
