old friends

nothing like seeing
old friends
nothing like remembering
stories of our youth

it feels so good
to be with someone
who knows you
so well
that you don't have to talk
or remind
or pretend

you can start talking
and start listening
like the years between you
just melt away

good friends
old friends
ones you can count on
ones that really know you
understand you
don't need explanations

sometimes
they can see the problems
because they know what inside
sometimes
they can judge
because you can trust them
and
sometimes
they know what is best
just because
they know you

always good to have a reminder
of
where you have been
to know
where you will be going
and
who
you can count on
