It's not about our ages now;
it's more or less our states of mind.
We have the aches that dreams allow
and pains of life once unconfined.
As kids we dreamed of growing up
and living unlike those before,
while drinking from a paper cup
and nothing yet to answer for.
Reality has taken hold,
and shows us life is often spent
depressed, alone or in the cold,
without the ones for which you're meant.
I thank the stars for my Nadyne
who lets each morning reconvene.
