For Emma, on her birthday

Lately we haven’t seen each other,

Since your home became another,

When you moved across the sea,

And put some space between you and me.


You’re all I asked for in a friend,

As my school days came to an end,

And life began to get quite scary,

Before I met the girl contrary.


So here’s a wish I have to say,

That this year you’ll have a great birthday,

Knowing that even oceans apart,

You and I see heart to heart.


When you come back we’ll celebrate,

Even if it is a little late,

Because if there’s one thing that I’ve learned,

It’s that good friends are not to be spurned.
