Friends in photographs

Flipping through my photographs,
I see you staring at me again,
Looking at those eyes so true,
Memories flooding from the blue.

Looking back into the past,
It seems the time flew so fast,
You were there so close to me,
So near that i couldnt see.

Talking for hours in our days,
Looking for brand new ways,
To enjoy and have some fun,
Just play dodge ball or run.

As we grew older i saw u there,
For each other we used to care,
Trying new things and fooling around,
we never knew all this was time bound.

For time would be gone someday,
When we wont meet everyday,
Where we couldnt take it for granted,
That i could be there whenever you wanted.

Then one day you left for a differnt place,
I still remember the look on your face,
Your face said a million things that day,
When we finally went different ways,

I felt your presence for a long time,
Whenever i needed a hand to climb.
I missed you that special days,
to decide whether to run or stay.

Seeing you picture in my hand,
I thought of the slipping time sand,
Realizing that far you never were,
Coz from my heart you would never blur.

This is for my childhood friends who went away so far but are still very near

Deeply poignant, yet it doesn't miss the "I-have-moved-on" feeling.

Sad it is, we forget people who remain out of close proximity.
