Your eyes record a different world than mine,
Without my music, books, or time.
Declining years loom ahead,
Your face lights with futuristic hope instead.
Joking, you say, go back to days long past,
But no return would I gladly clasp.
Adolescence confusion reaped.
Love and marriage replaced dreamland,
Hard work on every hand.
Lonely passages and dangerous curves,
This present life, opportunity serves.
So many have gone before,
Some certain few stand at the door.
Tree branches end in buds to bloom,
No matter the change, it comes too soon.
Young eyes with wonder see and decide,
Old vision dims with ancient grief abide.
Hardly knowing what you don’t know,
Ever and anon, it’s ever so.
Look and see,
Live and be.
One day plighted,
Where life united.
