Ebb and Flow

We come across old friends and lovers,
a slap in the face and reminder of who we were
they will always have that image of you
no matter how much you’ve changed

They bump into you on the street, in stores,
they send you messages online and post comments
and you know they don’t know you
but you smile and say something polite anyway
they deserve so much after who you were

Flipping through old photographs
until they become new and present
only then might you realize how many people
have come and gone
and the ways you’ve morphed into someone
so different

Now you wonder how they’ve changed
and you hope that they have;
you only befriend those like you,
and thank goodness you’ve changed –
it’s all for the better
so you hope that they’ve changed,
and that they’re all the better
