Outside snow falls from the frozen sky
The trees lie dormant refusing eternal slumber
I think not of this time but one far away
Before any of this ever took place
I recall running wildly through trees
A great castle loomed in front of me
On my sides, my peers, my friends
The Marauder's we called ourselves;
Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs
The kings of mischief
I remember sneaking through Hogsmeade
Late, late at night
What if I'd gotten away?
What if I'd bit someone?
A thought that still haunts me
It always seemed that luck was on my side at Hogwarts
Though there were near misses
During those night explorations
That was how we came to write the Marauder's Map
We probably knew more about the Hogwarts grounds that any other students ever had
Harry has the map now; you'd be proud of him Prongs, old friend
If only you and Lily were still here
It'd be like old times
Sirius and I are the only Marauder's left
How far apart we drifted, but Sirius came he always did
Before the truth was known, It was just me, the last Marauder shunned for being a werewolf all my life
Until I found you guys of course
I had thought you and Peter were dead, and Sirius guilty
But now Sirius is back, the truth is out and our lives have finally started to piece themselves back together
We miss you James, and I thank you for everything you did for me
It was an honour to have you as a friend.

A/N and Disclaimer: I know it's short but it's what came to me during Finals. You should see the rough copies. I had an awesome beginning but cut it out to use as another fic cuz it just didn't fit Lupin. It was more Harry than anything else. If someone reviews my
'let it rain' story I'll give you a cookie(just kidding) :p
Peace Out!
