“Long Lost Friend”

I ran into an old friend the other day.
Ever see someone you know, but don’t recognize them and don’t know what to say?

I stood there just staring at him for what seemed like 5 minutes or so,
Then I realized what time it was, and I had somewhere to go.

I couldn’t shake the thought that I knew this person, but I just couldn’t place it.
The more I thought about it, the sadder I felt and I didn’t want to face it.

His eyes were so familiar yet so foreign.
I wanted to say something, but didn’t want to sound like an idiot. Suddenly sorrow started to pour in.

I wanted to stay and re-connect, but being pressed for time I quickly regained my thoughts and got on my way.
I finished shaving and jumped in the shower, so I wouldn’t be late for work and started my day.

I realized we’re never the person we once were, because life changes us and our old self we can never stay.
We can only hope it’s for the better and we’ve learned some valuable lessons along the way.

I wish this moment could last. I didn’t want it to end.
But unfortunately it passed, and I was reminded of a long lost friend.

WHO'S GOT IT BETTER THAN US?!?!
 
Who's got it better than us? The 49ers are headed to the Super Bowl with a 28-24 win vs. Atlanta in the NFC Championship!

Up way too early. Plans for today... Go to work for a few hours, then come back home and clean, then if there's time MW3 so I can rank up.

To all my Northern Cali people or anyone that really enjoys smooth, jazzy, funky, Latin, Reggae, Hip-Hop, R&B music there's a great band (and yes they're a band no DJ) from Mission District in San Francisco, CA. They are a must listen. They just dropped a new CD and it's probably one of the better CD's I've heard this year.
