    reaching out to you
    long distance
    like an umbilical cord
    connected...
    what would i do if i couldn't talk to you
    what would we do if we couldn't talk to each other
    our bond formed so many years ago
    and who knew
    as we laughed and drank
    and sat next to one another in the lifeguard chair
    a lifelong friendship would be formed
    i can still see so clearly the night we bonded
    the sand on the floor, the music blasting
    an indoor beach party
    me and you, manning the lifeguard chair
    laughing at the people below us
    drinking moosehead beer
    "jimmy...really!"
    we couldn't wait til the next friday
    then there would be a "black" party
    and we could hear the funky four + 1 more
    laughter and greenwich village
    ice cream and the haunted mansion
    our friendship a whirlwind of experiences
    twenty years later
    two marriages for you
    1 marriage for me
    5 children between us
    and we still share secrets that our spouses can never know
    so i was feeling weak today
    thinking dark thoughts and rehearsing bad habits
    doing rewinds in my mind
    until i reached out long distance to you
    and what seemed like the worst day in a while
    turned into a day not so bad
    if you look at it from another perspective
    like an umbilical cord
    we're connected
    don't know what i would do without you
    but i'm **** sure glad you're still here
