Party in 1999

Back there again in 1999.
Best friends living up the sweet time.
Spray painting our names on the wall.
We were sure we'd never see an end to it all.

Having a good time and nothing else there.
Troubled times and we didn't even care.
Young and restless as we all are.
We grabbed onto life and rode it so far.

All our energy poured out until it spilt. 
No one felt anything resembling guilt.
We were young, wild, and free.
Good times ahead, that's all we see.

There our friendship was forever cemented.
Looking back it is ours to be lamented. 
One day our bones will be at rest. 
I know that I lived my life to the best.

    I guess in young days some are wild and free and for me I think I was grown up before my time. Sounds like you found a friend for life. Enjoyed your poem. God Bless phyl
