Got in touch with a school friend after donkey’s years,
Must be easily over 25 years,

What followed was a barrage of exchanges,
Of photos notes and life’s changes,

This continued with updates in each’s life,
But mostly reminiscences of our school life,

Now suddenly there’s been a pause,
And I fail to understand what could be the cause,

Why has my friend suddenly become silent?
I wonder what’s stopping her from making a comment?

This is not like my outspoken friend,
This behaviour is for me hard to comprehend,

Perhaps this attempt of mine will elicit,
A response from her that’s fit…
