R.S.V.P.

 

We couldn't come to our own party.

 

We were too busy

loving and working

running on roads 

that never crossed.

 

Perhaps we could have -

should have -

celebrated

just once before

 

            Time recycled

            the seasons into neat

            bundles, onescore and ten,

            wrapped in gossamer.

 

Comes now a summons:

 

Dressed as you are

in the glow of memories

undimmed

by all the years,

 

Fate requests the honor of your presence,
