Thinking of old friends today
And how many of them have slipped away
Moved, got married, or stopped calling so much
Found new friends, got busy, and just lost touch
It reminded me of falling leavesEvery autumn the leaves fall from the treesSome stay longer than others but eventuallyEach leaf must fall,I’m toldLeaving the tree alone to face the cold
Why is it that in the time of utmost need
The leaves would seek to leave the tree?
And when we need our friends around
We look and they can’t be found?
Of course these friendships come and go
And in the spring new leaves will grow
But I prefer autumn friends of old
With crackling laughter and colors bold
It saddens me nowI must admit, how somehow somewayI did forget laughing with old friends of mineDuring summers when the sun would shine
And then I thought of U
That one stubborn leaf that won’t let go
That clings despite the winds that blow
Fighting ice and snow and winter’s stings
Hanging on right through till spring
So I guess that’s what U are to meThe very last leaf to leave the treeI know it seems silly, but it’s trueWhen I see that leaf I think of U…..
