Theresa Ann Moore

(1940 / Michigan, U.S.A.)

50th Class Reunion


A long breath of accumulated years
Has sustain each day as lives veered
Taking pathways to the unforeseen
Following fragrant flowering dreams

Our fiftieth class reunion marks the occasion
How has distance altered the equation?
Smiles abound with freely given embraces
Recognizable voices give light to familiar faces

Amazed by high school sweethearts still together
Married all these years…reflecting one another
Conversations revolve on the harmonious carousel
Past and present unite and simultaneously dwell

Sharing talk of whereabouts and growing families
Sharing blessings as well as overcoming tragedies
Attentively listening as seasoned old friends narrate
Remembering with a tribute…departed classmates

All united under the canopy of a vast star lit sky
Reminiscing joyfully before former teens say goodbye
As I drive home… youthful voices resound in my mind
Suspended in a moment of time…where age is not defined

There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
