We’re halfway back with the truck’s radio roaring
*Beep* 1 New Message
Thinking ‘oh its just mom’ I don’t check it immediately
When I do look, I see your name
No, my heart doesn’t skip a beat like it used to
But the world around does kinda freeze
I get that silly grin and read your message
‘I hope u had a good time’
Look how long it’s taken us to get to this
Almost a year since we first hung out
But I’m sure you don’t realize that
A lot happened since then
And thinking about all of that, I think of the song Cool
‘After all that we've been through I know we're cool’
Hey, I’m glad we made it,
It’s long over due
And no you might not realize this
But you’re a great friend

The author's comments:
That same friend I talked about in a couple other poems, is finally starting to come around and make an effort.
