1963 was the eventful year
that we met,
Like two puppies...
not fully grown yet.
How could we know each other
before our personalities were set?
Yet there was something about our friendship
we could never forget.
1973 was the year
that we finally said good-bye,
Thinking at the time
that you were not "my guy".
Having no clue where our future
Yet starting out on the road with Hopes
that were high.
Throughout the years,
Life has been our Teacher.
Guided by God's Word,
could there be a better preacher?
You filled your days with fun...
enjoying life's every feature.
Never giving it a thought,
an unexpected chance to "reach her".
I am so glad you were not afraid of the one
you would find,
Trusting that I'd grown
both more loving and kind.
One who respects you and the ties that bind,
And appreciates another chance,
a lasting friendship to find.
