Too much time

I believe that too much time had passed us by since we had seen each other. We laughed a lot on the telephone the last time we spoke.
We always kept in touch through the years but too much time had passed us by this time.
The memories seem faded like those old pictures we went through so may years ago.
The children have all grown up and grandkids who look just like their parents ran around at our feet, giggling and laughing.
Someone told the children to slow down, but I was glad they didn’t stop because it reminded me of you and I sitting on some cement steps on my house as one of my children climbed up and sat in between the two of us. Thank you for being my best friend for so many years. You helped me through my stumbles and good times.
