At Broken Wharf - London

A Monday spent in winter sun
The festive season has begun
Decorations, Christmas lights
Bring magic to December nights.

An annual lunch out with a friend
News exchanged – a frothy blend
The same face I have known for ages
As Time’s great book has many pages.

We’re growing older, lines appear
Family members disappear
Marry, have kids, get engaged
As Shakespeare said, “the world’s a stage”

We travel down life’s road unknown
And keep in touch by telephone
But nothing beats a face to face
A moment shared at slower pace …
