This road and I met a very long time ago. Although she had been around for a long time amongst those who knew her, she was very new to me. Her sounds, looks, smells, shops and the overall feeling she gave me as I walked alongside her.
Over time I got to know her very well. No longer labeled as new, she was now a familiar road. I could describe her to others and give directions. I knew what I would find each time I went to her.
So many memories were created. Too many to count or tell.
One day I said good bye, not knowing when I would return.
For years we were apart and during those years we grew apart. She had many others to keep her company and I met new roads that kept me walking.
When I did come back I saw how much we had both changed.
I knew who she was but I was just another passer by visiting.
The memories are still there, tucked in a corner of my heart.
I’ll never forget her. x
