Old Friends

Old friends
sat side beside
sharing tales
catching up
nothing lost between them

Countless years lost between

Long ago,
it was so long ago
we were inseparable
then we were separated

We both moved on
and on

There we sat
just like old time
seeing just how the same
we both were
Two lives lived in parallel:
youth, school and our families, too

There I sat,
once again
a nameless Johnson
(but never a Johnson)
furtively sharing stories
with Megan
instead of listening
to the people up front

Life came full circle that night
and I was fourteen again
