Best Friend

Remember when we spent our summer nights up on the old ball-field
Playing tag or dancing to the imaginary music
We heard the wind sing,

And remember when you invited me over for ice cream
And we sat on your front porch lapping SWeet
Cream and laughing,

And remember when my mom stopped calling me home,
And I would just stay and talk to you for as long
As I could stand to,

And remember how I didn't want to go,
And how we would spend nights in our
Sleeping bags under the plywood ceiling
Of your tree house,

And remember how I had to move away
To Carolina, where I'd never get to see you again

And remember how I held your hand and
Kissed your cheek like it was
Coated in honey

Remember how I promised I would find you again
No matter what,
How I pinky promised

I remember.
