That familiar song played softly in the background, their song; simple lyrics that were once so special, just to them. So many years had passed but not the tender memories. The long separation of time seemed not to exist even though life had taken them in different directions. Each laughed as they remembered so many things from back then, especially the innocence of their youth. They shared joyful experiences and spoke of unfulfilled dreams as their realities started drifting into the conversation. Both silently wondered, imagined, and chose to leave painful things unsaid.
Suddenly, there was nothing more to say except goodbye, again.
From Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop….one of the choices for this week’s prompts was….Write a blog post in exactly 7 lines.
Not easy for someone like me who loves to write at length, about anything and everything, but it was a good exercise in getting a story out while staying within the guidelines. I thought back to reunions, especially high school ones; everyone meets, reminisces, and then slowly drifts back into their little corner of the world.
