Reunions Part II

It started on a diamond

The outfield and the mound

Three cool teens with cooler dreams

A friendship’s what was found


It grew outside of baseball fields

To parking lots and surf

To New York City dancing clubs

Where they landed was their turf


College came and split them up

Those dreams were coming true

Baseball would still play a part

But separately was new


Marriage came, then jobs and kids

Homes were far away

Time got long between the calls

No more games to play


The time turned into years so fast

The hair’s now thin and grey

The gut might be a little soft

I long for one more day


I got a message from afar

There's a baseball game nearby

The son of one of those cool teens

I’ll be there. I will fly.


I know I’ll be transported

To a time so long ago

I’ll see those two amazing friends

The best friends I’ll ever know
