High School Reunion

Long time no see…
I know! – Twenty years!

Of course. I’ve been just fine.
And how about yourself?

Yes, life’s treated me OK.
I’m glad you can’t complain either.

You say, I’ve gotten older? I’ve got some crow’s feet?
No, Sweetheart, you are wrong,
Those are not wrinkles.

They are the tear routes and kisses of despair;
They are my laugh lines and imprints of great joy.

They aren’t unwelcome signs of aging…

They are my proof of having been alive…
