Dear Friends

Dear friends weave thru the tapestry of our lives in all their glory
Adding their unique color thru their remarkable stories
Uniting us in the shared times we have had on our journey here
Providing us a deep acceptance as we share our joys and fear
As we face this future unfolding in a world out of control
Somehow our shared time together can assist us in feeling whole
As the young ones may see us declining for they don’t see within
Beneath this aging facade to that place where we each begin
To share the wisdom we’ve garnered as elders as we grow old
Before the very soul of our planet began being bought and sold
There is a remarkable comfort in the pattern that we weave
An indelible part of our tale that remains after we leave
