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…
