I miss my friends from long ago
The happy times we used to know
Football games and special events
Those summer weddings under tents.
All of the wars they had their cost,
Our pals that we have loved and lost
And now the enemy’s become
The dicky hearts we suffer from.
With cancer scoring second best
Our lives are never done with tests
The joys we knew when we were young
Those carefree days are gone and done
I’m sad I’ve lost so many friends
Our lifestyles soon will meet their ends
As will both you and I, in time
This has become a lonely climb !
