Remember me? Maybe you do and maybe you don’t, it’s a mystery to me. Well, if you don’t, let me refresh your memory. When we were kids our parents always set playdates for us and invited us to each other’s birthday parties. We were really close in elementary school whether we knew it or not, since we were kids and all. I, was your childhood friend.
For many years we were in the same classroom and had the same teachers. Majority of our time was together, especially during recess where talking and running around was all we were doing. We didn’t know how we connected or why we did, but that was because we were kids. All we did was smile at each other, laugh with each other, accepted it and let our friendship grow.
Once we got closer, everything got in the way. Different activities, moving to a different town, even everything in between was a bullet we couldn’t dodge. We didn’t know how to get in touch with each other anymore and neither did our parents. Defeat was accepted and the friendship was lost, it was quite a sad moment since we couldn’t know how to befriend anyone else at such a young age.
Years went by, we kept getting older and we eventually made friends to try to fill your place. Crossing upon memories that you find in boxes that were never unpacked, or even touched, showed some pictures of us from elementary school. Every memory I came across I started to remember more vividly about our friendship. Looking each other up on social media helped us reconnected a little bit, but not one hundred percent.
The moments elementary school and your name are mentioned I sometime wonder how your life is going. It definitely won’t be like my life because no two lives run the same course. I sometimes wish I was a child again so I could keep our memories alive forever. I hope you read this letter, remember me and hope you are doing well in your path of life right now.
Sincerely,Your Former Childhood Friend
