For Julie

I had another mother once

For a couple hours after school

Born the same day/time as her daughter

Daughter took me as a fool

I said go inside, ask Mom

She’ll tell you that it’s true

It only made us closer

The Colonel’s daughter and me

We baked a lot of cookies

Together, as we

Time has placed us apart

With marriage and kids

I ran into her Mom on a knitting site

She put us back together, it fits

We’re still 1,000 miles apart

But I remember us as kids

Cheers! Dee
