You Are Not Replaceable

My friend
We met yesterday
Or maybe we met under the stars a thousand years ago
Or maybe I met you at the skating rink
Or maybe you cheated off my paper in 9th grade and I let you
Or maybe you saved my life and you don't even know it
My kindred spirit
You are irreplaceable to me

My friend
You told me it was okay to be me
You laughed at my dumb jokes
You gave me words with honesty
You gave me silence when words were not good enough
You held my hand
You shared your secrets with me and I kept them
You are irreplaceable to me

My friend
I saw you yesterday
I haven't seen you for a thousand years
Can you still skate backwards?
I'm glad you got an A on that 9th grade history test
I owe you my life
My kindred spirit
You are irreplaceable to me

To all my friends...everywhere...I love you.
