Oh How I Wish I Had An Imaginary Friend

Oh, how I wish I had an imaginary friend
to play with me once more.
We could pretend that I was a customer
that came to her store.

With a few coins in my pocket
my eyes would wander in a search for candy,
And she would show me around her business
full of sweets as she had many.

A childish game perhaps but with memories
of a time that too soon came to past.
Never stopped once to understand
the true meaning as the years went too fast.

A little shy boy that made a friend
in the heart without knowing of the love,
That was lost in the disappearing of growing up
as the flight of a white wing dove.

No more make believe stores
that sold the best candy that was so very cheap,
Only an empty feeling of someone I lost
many years ago and that I now weep.

Somewhere in an album a picture of her
with a smile across her beautiful face,
While these eyes stared at the empty lot
of dreams where we often enjoyed a race.

Gone is the experience of holding hands
in the form of an innocence of a child,
Feelings of a trust in a bond that made us friends
as our hearts and legs ran wild.

Chases that lasted until the sun went down
without knowing the distance of a mile,
Only going to bed to rest the body
for tomorrow’s race as I slept with a smile.

Oh, how I wish I had an imaginary friend
once more that I could trust to play,
Push and shove, laugh and smile,
cry and make up and return to me the next day.

Good-bye my first good girl friend
that I didn’t notice how different we were outside,
Because inside our hearts we were full of love
that showed as we walked together with pride.
