if I had known

that the time we spent together,

shouting aloud ‘best friends for eva’ ,

would be sweet and short-lived ,

I would have enjoyed them more as they happened,

rather than think about those moments now,

with a smile and a shrug.  

Nothing lasts for ever they say, 

Neither you. Nor me.

As the pretty drops of rain palter my window sill;

in a different time and a different place,

we would be talking about how the gods must be crazy. 

The time of our lives, we’ve had.

True for you and for me.

Someday; if that day ever comes,

when I run into you again,

hope we’ll have stuff to talk about and laugh,

and make memories anew.

Till that time comes,

All I can say is,

It was good knowing you.
