Now You See Them…

It starts with with another
A partner they have met
They pop in and out
but gradually they forget

And then they get married
or as close as can be
Barely then do you see them
or the friendship that used to be

Then a patter of tiny feet
expected this you did
No-more these friends come by
they’ve moved on, the past they don’t miss

So you sit alone
wishing to see them more
But who is it you shed your tears?
Is it them? Or you and the past you long for?
