Good Friends - Poem by Colin Coplin

I haven’t seen them for what must now be years
Not since our old and wonderful school days
Partners, careers and chance, they all take us on different roads
Some for the better, some should never, left home
But when I see you, it’s like we are kids again
Good friends last throughout the years

Yeah, I sometimes thought of you
Wondered what you might have become
As we talked about the old times
Through another round of beers
Good friends last throughout the years
Good friends last throughout the years

You in that expensive dress, me in my jeans to big
Sharing a ride, on the old 365
It was almost love, so why didn't I try, why wasn’t I brave, enough
Good friends last throughout the years

Break

It’s late in the morning, recalling, rejoicing
Singing the songs of yesterday
The years haven’t changed us, well maybe just a touch
You always had so much to say
Good friends last throughout the years
Good friends last throughout the years

I haven’t seen them for what must now be years
Not since we all went our own separate ways
But good friends last throughout the years
Good friends last throughout the years
