Old Memories

I hear a familiar voice
And for a few minutes
Life wasn’t unbearable
We don’t speak the same words
But the meaning rang true

We exchanged greetings
The only way we could
And I knew it had been too long
I wondered how you’d been
And what’s new with you

Strangers coming back together
Again on the same frequency
Forgetting life’s trials
Like two stars in the nighttime sky
Immortal to none but ourselves

I never forgot
Neither did you
Living in old memories
And keepsakes from the past
Until we meet again.
