Erosion

I once was young,
proud and so vain.
Years arrive at me,
aspect it changed.

I see youth at play,
no regard for days
coming for change,
to wrinkle the face.

See all of the stares
translating remove
the facade you live
in you must choose.

It won’t last forever,
a stride in your feet.
For fade a physical
attraction, it leaves.

Who will dive into
with you to laugh?
Who will help you
drown out the past?

Let the wind of joy
carry you in a cloud.
From those who do
forgive to love loud.
