Skipping Stones To Pass The Time
Author: Pamela O'Brien


I have driven by that little girl
Time and time again
Never realizing she was still there
Skipping stones and waiting
For her long lost friend to return

So when I walked out onto the riverbed
And she ran to me with open arms
Imagine my surprise to discover
That I had been waiting for her too

Thought she had gotten lost
But she was in front of me all along

Afraid to leave and search for me
In the event that I would return
To find her gone
And then she too would be alone

With no common grounds for us to reunite
