A Reconnection Of Spirit - Poem by william upton

Over time
Something separates the best of friends-
Geography, marriage, divorce, kids, apathy-
Something that really shouldn't be.
We remember the best times of our lives,
Yet we lose track of those who made them possible.

Time is a divider.
It is the constant in the equation
That makes us lose sight of one another.
The older we get, the fewer reunions.
But, why?
Have we become so involved in our own lives
That we forget those who had been closest to us?
Are we so lazy or full of procrastination
To not be able to pick up a phone or drop a note?

Several months ago I located and called my college roommate
Who I hadn't seen or spoken to since graduation.
(Who lives 3 hours away) .
Within 5 minutes,40 years of distance had evaporated,
And we were both 20 years old again,
Laughing, screaming like monkeys,
Once again grateful for our relationship, our bond,
And the memories we will have forever.

It doesn't take long to reconnect with importance.
Within 5 minutes you will remember
Why you were friends long ago...
And always will be.
