Well, I woke up this morning [4:30A.M.] THIS was on my Mind.

My high school reunion has thinned
There aren’t quite as many as there were back then
My high school reunion has thinned

My high school reunion has thinned
Our paths to this moment littered with sins
My high school reunion has thinned

My classmates have grown quite old
So have I, if I believe what the mirror unfolds
We were young and now we are old

My high school reunion has thinned
We are and we aren’t who we were back then
My high school reunion has thinned

My classmates like I have experienced loss
Parents, spouses, children, health some of the cost
We are who we are because or in spite of this loss

My high school reunion has thinned
Paths diverged have merged, once again friends
My high school reunion has thinned

Our faces hold stories that beg to be told
Our faith has been tested, refined like gold
Memories compiled that long to be told

My high school reunion has thinned
We notice whose missing not like back then
My high school reunion has thinned

We are the survivors, torchbearers of then
Who remember most of it with a grin
My high school reunion has thinned

If you read this and you are still young
Don’t let a song in your heart go unsung
Believe me you won’t always be young.

My high school reunion has thinned.

Some times you just got to get up and write even if it makes no sense.
