Twenty years go by
Our lives passed before our eyes
A friend gone too soon
Life is short, sometimes shorter than we would expect. Twenty years ago I was 18. Twenty years ago life was just beginning. Twenty years ago seems like yesterday. Twenty years ago was so long ago. This poem and song is dedicated to my friend, whom I lost touch with yet never forgot.
Ever since I was a little girl this has been my favorite song. Something about it has always lifted my spirits even though it is a very sad song.
