What old skin needs peeling away?
What gives security to your life?
What foolishness gives you pleasure?
I lost my first entry this a.m. boo hoo. so… here I am hours later and finally at home from a fun filled high school re-union… I can’t recapture my morning words, gone into the cyber-universe to be reshuffled.
The River Boat Princess took us for a float
down the Grand River for some fun with ol’ folk
from our yesterdays past we told stories galore
some where pure fiction some were of amore
Was no coincidence this river gave flow
to all our history of so long ago
Floating upon our feelings of life
from teenager to geezer, our joys and our strife
Laugher and tears, unity and grace
Some of us were dancing all over the place
We looked darn good for really old farts
Amazed at how life brought us this far
There is something about knowing someone
for 5 decades that where never undone
the music, the politics, the signs of those times
is what brings us together those times that bind
We had lots of fun more now than back then
Pretense is gone and we get the real friend
that layers of life peeled down to our true essence
All the trying to hard doesn’t make sense
What I see as my eyes gather you all in my site
Is the gratitude I feel when I see your pure light
All shiny and new as our first day of school
only now we play by grown up rules
I’ve rambled on with this poem long enough
the geezer girl needs to close all this stuff
later my friends we’ll meet again soon
Sincerely, with love from me to you.
