Fifteen Years

to my “LL” group

It’s been fifteen years
And time must leave its marks

The crow’s feet in our smiles
The wrinkles on our faces
The not as shining eyes
The beer bellies, big or small

And it is okay
Since time must do its work

And it is okay
As long as we are beautiful the way we care for others,
We’re shining with our dreaming thoughts,
Our hearts are full of vivid memories
Of the years we worked together
Of the beautiful moments we experienced-
Birthday parties,
Nights at the beach,
Day trip at the Water park
At work, at play

And it is okay
Since we are all the time beings
Blown away as time flies by
Like a piece of charred paper
Hovering over the brick chimney
In the harsh winter months

And it is okay
