It’s only goodbye for now, because someday we’ll meet again.
Crossing over fences, and you without the pain.
From kindergarten on, a friend you were to me.
Spending most of the days hours together, no better friend you could be.
Riding bikes, playing sports, and our BB guns in hand.
All the summer days, until you were burnt red, and I was browned tan.
You were like a brother, and I hope that you felt the same.
From strangers in kindergarten, to brothers we became.
Grade School, Middle School, and High School goes by.
Time as friends is less, and I’m not sure why.
Although life’s path took us, in very different ways.
Memories of those fences and fields, in my mind will always stay.
Thank you John, for the friendship that you gave.
Until we meet again my friend, all our memories as friends, I will lways save.
Rest In Peace my friend.
