Best Friends/Fork in the Road
We grew up in separate neighborhoods,
Meeting when two roads converged…
Both uniting on a single path,
The day our futures merged.
High school graduation designed
An unexpected fork in the road…
Moving in different directions,
We each found our own area code.
A decade later, by surprise
Our paths converged again.
We compared our different directions,
While remembering our lives back when.
Still best friends forever,
The asphalt paving began to erode.
Different goals and alcohol,
Placed a final fork in the road.
Somehow despite everything,
We both found what we desired…
A roof, a bed, a dog to love,
And against all odds, retired.
