I Almost Forgot About You

PoetryArvia WalkerComment

Hey you...

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.
