Pals

What would you say,
Would you just turn away,
If we met on the street,
Today?
Would you walk up to me,
Or pretend not to see,
Would you give me a nod,
Or a smile?
Would we talk of old times,
Over tea… perhaps wine?
It’s been a few years,
After all.
When everything changes,
Except who we were,
Can you let the past,
Fade away?
When memories may seem,
All but a dream,
Can you still hear my voice,
In your head?
Or am I just a face,
Someone you can’t quite place,
In a background of noise,
And haze?
Would you shout my name,
If we met on the street,
Or would we be strangers,
Again?
