Where did all of them go?
Friends, like time, gone by
Just like that
Weren’t they supposed to stick around?
You thought that, too!
A smile, a hello, a nod
An ally for life
And that one girl in that one class
Maybe more than an ally?
So many people doomed to the past
Fleeting memories today
Names that sometimes pop into the mind
Maybe dead, maybe alive
How many years have slipped away?
Can I grab just one and hold onto it
For more than just one day?
To remember all those yesterdays
And all those people
And the laughter
And the moments
Gone in a blink
