HANGING UPSIDE DOWN

 

They grew up close together…sharing laughter…sharing frowns

playing in their backyards…hanging upside-down.

 

The world was oh so different then, as they hung so effortlessly

It was a simpler, uncomplicated time…more innocent and free.

 

A time when all that children needed to do was laugh and sing and play

when hanging upside down…unimpeded…they would sway.

 

For they were making memories…no future memory would surpass

As they hung there…upside down…or ran barefoot in the grass.

 

And as they look back at this picture now…it’s those memories they see

awakening from a place where they shall always be…

 

And when thy close their eyes to remember…that certain time…that certain year

sometimes it brings a smile…sometimes it brings a tear

 

Because they realize how lucky they are 

to have shared a life time of laughter

and of frowns…

from a friendship that began so man-years ago

while hanging upside down.
