Do You Remember, Anne?

Do you remember, Anne, When we were so young And the world seemed so huge And we were just so small? The streets we played on Were rough and gray The toys we possessed  Grew dirty, displaced. Do you remember, Anne When we took charge of the school? The halls were our own To roam and explore, Our lives were our own To mess up and destroy. Our mistakes were many, The responsibility ours. Once you break a vase,  It’s just not the same again. Once you are lost, Anne, Can you be found? Do you remember, Anne, When we grew apart? Our lives split in two, Our dreams we pursued. I thought we would keep  In touch, but I guess not, And now I’m reading the paper… Do you remember, Anne, When we talked of morbid death? When we questioned the validity  Of Heaven…I guess now you know, But I have no idea Where you are right now… Will I ever see you again? Do you remember, Anne, When we had our fortunes told? Your lifeline was so long… Don’t trust the lady in the tent Anne, she lied to us. Do you remember Anne, When you told me about God? I wouldn’t listen. I didn’t need to, but now… I’m listening. Please, oh please, let me hear… Will I see you later, Anne?
