This poem was written for my best friend Sandra, before we became business partners.

My oldest friend,

my dearest too

Come sit with me and talk awhile

I need you still

no...even more

than years before

When we were young

and so secure

It's not been what they said it would.

But I'm not different,

can you see

Inside this built-up shell, it's me.

Success now stands before me

and I see the open door.

But now I'm frightened of its' song...

I never was before.

The steps are getting shorter

If I stretch I see the peak

But there's nothing on the other side

Except a free-fall into space.

I can't turn back 'cause

when you climb

they jerk the rungs away

And I don't want to fall so far...

So I'll hang here -- just for awhile,

Until the mist beyond clears off.

Please sit with me

That's all I need

An old friend

'Cause I'm still me.
