For a moment I didn’t recognize your face.
I was staring you dead in the eyes but you didn’t look quite the same.
You’d gotten a little older; time and life made your eyes a little dimmer.
I almost walked right by you but thank God for something there that still seemed familiar.
Where did you go hiding? What made you crawl into place?
I almost forgot about you my friend, I could barely remember your name.
My love, you were gone for so long and I hadn’t even realized that you were away.
But thank God for double takes and learning from mistakes
Because if it weren't for second chances, my dear, I could have lost you that day.
