AFTER

After all the makeup,
The hair and latest fashion,
After all the dinners
And sleeping on sheets of satin.

After all the weight loss
And removing of the grey,
The cream that claims the wrinkles
Will eventually fade away.

After all the gossip
Of friends old and new,
After all the vows are made
To be friends forever true.

After homes are paid for
And driving cars brand new,
What is left for us
What is left to do.

After that last vacation
When we can't take it anymore,
As we finally close the curtains
And last time lock the door.

Who will sit beside us
And who will hold us close
For sure it is a stranger
That will care the most.


Lynn Barany
