Life Got in the Way

This poem is dedicated to my best friend. Even though we've known each other 10 years, it feels as if we've been friends all of our lives.

We met through mutual
friends and have been
through thick and thin
ever since.

What happened to
those days when
we could go out
and treat
each other to dinner
even when we
had no dates
to double with?

But now that I
think about it,
sick parents,
needy children,
and job responsibilities
took center stage
in both of our lives.

Phone calls and emails
are the only way
we communicate
these days, because life
now dictates our
free time.
