In Life’s Orchestra


I sit in quiet contemplation
(As) my mind whirs with imagination
Savoring the sweetness of success
Regretting times of past excess
Recalling many world vacations
(And) a multitude of celebrations

Pictures of family and friends fly
Flickering shiningly in the sky
Please stop, I plead, with a saddened sigh
For I cannot bear to say goodbye
But they, like characters in a play
Cannot stay, not even for a day
Having touched my heart, they slip away

Watching them bow midst tears and laughter,
I’ll remember them forever after,
The red velvet curtain falls once more
On life I’ve embraced, and still adore.
