One week goes by like a quick breeze
Friends 40 years, we speak with ease,
laugh and cry over memories,
like planted trees, like planted trees.
We drove along Route 101,
views of beaches in dazzling sun.
We browsed antique shops, missing none.
Did we have fun! Did we have fun!
Side by side we rocked on a swing,
sipped on drinks through late evening.
We wondered what new years would bring.
Our hearts did sing, our hearts did sing.
