Let’s sit and chat the day away
Would you like a cup of tea?
I’ve made some scones and macaroons
Please come and sit with me.
We can converse out in the garden
Underneath the canopy
Let’s spend some time together
Alone just you and me.
I have so much to tell you
It’s been quite awhile
Since we’ve had time to talk
I have surly missed your smile.
We’ve shared so many secrets
So many treasures one by one
We have known each other for quite sometime
Since we were very young.
Now that we are older
Though our hair is turning gray
I know inside we’re still those girls
Who loved going out to play.
When I think about your mother
I can still see her sitting there
She was always fun to be around
I knew how much she cared.
Miss Sunday dinners at your house
Our walks thru the local park
The fun we had on holidays
Playing “hide n seek” till dark.
Our children all have grown up
They have children of their own
Time seems to pass by so fast
We both now live alone.
So glad you stopped by for tea
Let’s enjoy this afternoon
Please pass the cream and sugar
Have another macaroon.
Though we’ve had our share of heartache
Let’s try not to forget
The importance of our friendship
Since that first day when we met.
