My mom was reading the paper today
When something caught her eye
She read the story silently as a tear fell from her eye
I asked her what was wrong,
and this is what she said
I had a friend when I was young
we were the closest pair
We said we'd never be apart
But our promise didn't keep us there

We both went off to college
We promised to write each day
But those days slowly turned into years
and our friendship just slipped away
And we saw each other years ago
But we had nothing to say
We both had families now
So we both walked away

She showed me what she was reading
That her friend had just passed away
And now she finally realized
What she didn't say
She didn't say I love you
or I'm glad to see your fine
I'd love to meet your family
or love for you to meet mine
They only said there hello's
and now it's too late to say
All the things she should have said
Because her friendship has slipped away.

Very sad....being young, I've never been in this position, but I think we can all relate to the simple fact that way too often we take things for granted, never saying what we should. Before long it is too late. Exellent piece.
