As the years go by...

Once upon a time



our faces,



our bodies,



and minds were young.



We hadn’t a clue



what life really was.



Marriage, divorce,



babies and debts…



The pain of 



a cruel fleeting youth.



But like rings of a tree



each year, each storm,



each wrinkle and roll,



the hard times and good



have brought strength to our roots…



They’ve helped us stand tall…



To find pride in who



we’ve become.
