"We Used To Play Together" - a poem about childhood

Updated: Jun 26, 2023

This has happened to most of us at some time or another.

But try to remember when that childhood friendship was your entire world and nothing else mattered.

I hope you enjoy my poem about the fleeting nature of childhood.

We Used To Play Together

We Used To Play Together

We used to play together

so many years ago

Now many miles apart

our differences grow

This used to be all fields

We used to be all smiles

Where unaware we’d dance

down cherry blossom aisles

Today we passed each other

on roads we used to know

We looked the other way

and never said Hello
