i texted her, just to see if they were still here,
and a few minutes later my phone rang.
we have not seen them all summer, all of us so busy.
but, today we met for coffee, and caught up,
both of us feeling like no time had passed at all.
that is how it is with true friends, we both say.
plans were made for a road trip this winter
he and i down to see them. . .
now that he is retired!
