THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “When a Friend Dies” by Esther Cohen: lost, middle, upset, nursery, stories, dance, wait, treatment, week, school, older, lunches

Lost in the middle of a forest
The stories of us at their fullest
From nursery and school, all these years
Eating lunches together, a must

Best mates as we got older it appears
Went to dance and we had all the cheers
Buried our memories in the woods
Then we separated for our careers

Couldn’t wait to leave our childhoods
Out of nowhere I saw your falsehoods
The treatment I got from you was unfair
You never deserve all these knighthoods

Out of sight and mind that I could bear
I have no regrets with our affair
That part of us was now elsewhere
In the forest as I sigh with a tear*
