The Best Years

We go weeks and months in between
We can’t, but want to be there
Sharing coffee, spilling tea, remembering
The bond we’ve nurtured over these years
You see, I watched your kids grow up
They grew up right in front of me
And I remember when you jumped the broom
How we danced that night, I remember
Yes I remember
That one birthday, we got so lit
It was all a blur but the memory remains
Just like I remember that year you graduated
And how we celebrated
We laughed
We sang
We danced
These are the times
The times I will always remember
I remember waiting outside the club
Freezing in heels
Waiting to get to our table
I remember that time we got so high
I thought the car was a spaceship
I got seasick and my insides met your floor
I remember
I remember you making music working on beats
And us sleeping on that hard floor of that studio
Yes I remember
How could I not remember
How time has escaped me
Where did the minutes go
The hours we used to spend talking on the phone
Take me back to the soccer games we played
The young love I used to date
Time is precious
And as my clock ticks down
I learn to cherish
Because these days will swiftly pass by
And today will become yesterday
Within a blink of an eye
Black hair turns gray
And suddenly we can’t remember certain things
We lived in so many moments
But we will never get them back
The memories will never let go
And it’s getting harder to stay in touch
But wherever you go
However you grow
Please, just remember
Remember how things were before
Before we had jobs
Before we had nice clothes
Before the car payments
Before we knew what we now know
Our time is ever fleeting
And these years will keep going faster
Seeming shorter
So be in the moment
When it comes to memories I’m a hoarder
And I will hold on to as many details as I can remember
Because to remember
Can feel like to relive 

And to relive is to experience love once again
