How does one catch up after thirty odd years?
Where does one start?
In the present, the past,
Or somewhere in between?
What does one first talk about?
Family, work, interests, or beliefs?
Who will one meet on the other side?
What will have happened in the meantime?
There are no good answers for these questions
The order of things matters not!
It’s a renewal of an old connection
One that was thought of as gone!
It’s a deepening of a friendship that was there before
It’s being a solace to another’s soul
With a common past the foundation is strong
The building we build will touch the clouds!
