Viva la difference! by Ann Dow
We’ve made it through the middle years,
through sorrow, joy and hidden tears.
We’ve passed the point of no return,
but still there’s much for us to learn.
We may not always seem too wise,
but we have learned to compromise.
The candle’s glow may not be bright,
and yet it burns throughout the night.
Perhaps we often don’t agree,
but you are you and I am me.
You like to chase the little ball
and answer nature’s outdoor call.
I find contentment and unwind
through simple pleasures of the mind.
You seek and find the perfect bird;
my search is for the perfect word.
I’m no more right than you are wrong;
we simply hear a different song.
We share a world we’ve made our own,
and neither of us is alone.
