WHY FOLLOW ME AROUND?

WHY FOLLOW ME AROUND?

 

Responding recently to a High School friend

Whose always turning up around the next bend…

I wondered why

She’d try

To contact once again?

I set up a new “Linked-In” account with no gold

Frankly because I’d forgotten particulars of the old…

And here comes Dawn

With nary a yawn,

Being welcomingly bold.

Perhaps there are things I don’t see or recognise from then,

Why someone would value me to still reach out as friend…

Graduated in seventy-five,

Why should I deprive

Camaraderie of those who survived since then?
