To Friends I Have Lost

Because of distances,
Because of time apart,
Because we are born with egos, or
Because we never took the time.

Through Life’s twists and turns we have met,
Through Life’s twists and turns we have parted,
My Life’s twists and turns will never be the same,
Because your Life twisted and turned with mine.

A long road ahead still remains,
Company will be required to soften its pavement.
Of those that would be wanted along,
A few could be found in those left behind.

Distances can be conquered,
Time can be tamed,
Egos can be swallowed,
For the twists and turns of a Life are unique,
And are the only ones that will affect yours just that way.
