"The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present."


Eight years
Is how long it took
To build our friendship
On a foundation so solid
Nothing
Can ever destroy it

Eight years
We knew each other
On the surface
Never breaking through
Because niether of us
Needed to

Eight Years
Then one day we learned
Of a connection
Weak but present
It broke our outer shells
We thought had been invincible

Eight Years
And when we look back
You confide in me that
Our shells were so hard
So impenetrable
You thought I hated you

Eight years
Till we needed each other
Till without one another
We risked slipping
Throught the cracks
Never to return unchanged

Eight years
And now I know
We are each other's guardian angels
Each other's wings
