Seventeen - Song or Poetry

She Was Seventeen

She was seventeen and I was not
Eight years apart so many years ago
Now we are older
Time and Life goes on

Today songs jog my thoughts
Jane's Addiction - Been Caught Stealing
I remember you as we were
Violent Femmes - Gimme the Car

Twenty-one came and went
The celebration remembered with vodka toasts
You knew what you wanted even then
Moving toward heart felt desires

The Cure marked a division set in time
The Love Cats
Songs are all that are left
My thoughts drift only back

She was seventeen and I was not
Eight years apart so many years ago
Now we are older
Time and Life goes on
