We Are Old Now
We are old now, you and I
Much older than we were when we first stood at the altar
And promised each other for better or worse.
Those young faces smiling at us from our wedding photos
Now walk around our house, their iPhone or iPad in hand,
Talking about ballet or NFL football
As if those are the most important things in the world.
Our youth slips from us and into them,
We the living portraits,
They the Dorian Grays,
Each of us happy with the arrangements because we know
Such is the way of life.
