We were inseparable, as neighbors, Sunday school friends, schoolmates, college roomies together everywhere.
Our regular haunt, this diner. The owners knew us and our preferences. Didn’t need to order.
We spent holidays together – cycling, swimming, sleepovers, book reading, sightseeing.
Our parents always knew where to find us. You found one, you found the others.
We shared it all – exam scares, teen woes, career struggles, love pains etc.
People marveled, seeing we were red and yellow, black and white.
Oh, we did have our fights & squabbles. Nothing lasted.
Until marriage, kids & families. We flew apart. Too busy to connect. Until today.
