like bottles cast out to sea
in time, though lost
somehow always find their way to shore again.
Memories are too strong
filled with laughter and tears
they live on.
Years pass…yet time stands still
Everyone grows…yet nothing has changed
You turn around and yesterday’s child is still there
the people the same
the warmth alive
the love aglow
and I’m thankful to know
that the good memories outweigh the bad
and the happy times more than the sad are remembered.
As life goes on and people fade in and out
I realize more and more
that the oldest friends are the dearest
and the times we shared the most cherished
and our lives together
have only mellowed and aged
like fine vintage wine.
