REUNION
A Poem by Dixie Crosby

the faces have
grown older but
I know that voice

and I recognize
the walk, after all
these many years

and this is my past
where no one knows me
it was magic, pure magic

were we ever really
that young? we were...
and those were the days

where did we go?
and who did we know...
it never really mattered

when push comes to shove
it is only love that prevents us
from being shattered

I find it odd that as years pass by
we suddenly connect
with our past

and stranger yet...
and with some regret
I lost sight of what really mattered

the best antiques
to collect are
old friends

memories are threads that
hold together the patchwork
of so many old friendships

embrace the memories
for this one special night and
allow them to soar & delight

was she nice?
was he mean?
was she really prom queen?

well, it was always
just a toss
of the dice

someday we'll look back
laugh nervously and
suddenly change the subject

we were so young!
we never knew who's heart
we had the power to wreck

years pass by, the more you need
the people you knew when
you were young

and I, for one
loved every moment,
and thank God for Corky Dunn!

those were the days my friend
we thought they'd never end
we'd sing and dance forever and a day

we'd live the life we choose
we'd fight and never lose
for we were young and sure to have our way.
