"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world." -Harriet Tubman

I went back in time
Not too far back, in fact
I only went to before you left

I saw you and me
Carefree as could be
holding hands and singing songs
laughing and talking all day long.

Then at night we'd sit by the fire
and reminisce about times together
until we'd get tired and go to bed
and I remember you said
"Lets be friends forever and ever."
and I held your hand even tighter
and said, "I'd fight for you day
and night just to be with you."

Memories that bring me to my knees
bring me to tears
take away all my fears
until all I can hear
is the sound of us.
The sound of two best friends.
