Drifting Away

A Poem

Sitting here in my wheelchair,

Staring at our pictures on the wall,

Thinking about how much we’ve changed,

Drifting away like a boat out at sea,

I guess that’s what happens when you start to love young

people changed and paths began to change

It's hard for me to see you as the same

Cause I know we’re drifting away from what we used to be

I don’t want to say goodbye but the more I look at you

The more and more I know it’s that time

Cause we’re drifting things are changing

And I can’t hang on no more…
