A Poem About Sunglasses - Poem by Jim Yerman

Every stage of life is distinctive…from birth until we're grown
Each one carries with it a beauty all its own…

But getting older is something special…
it's like your life is one continuous song
and all the ages you've ever been…
are in the chorus…and sing along.

You know you're getting older…the proof is written on your face
But then something unexpected happens that makes the years erase…

And youth begins to sing out loud…and you smile for you know
you are as young in that one moment…as you were, once, long ago…

A pair of sunglasses found in the park, left behind by a girl at play
I put them on..I sat in a swing…and the years just slipped away…

I found myself in a different time…I'm not sure where or when…
A time I was a child…on the playground once again…

I left her sunglasses in the park and as we walked away
I noticed another man put them on…then he, too, began to play.

I'm glad I happened on those sunglasses…I will always be in their debt
for reminding me no matter how old I am…there'a a lot of youth left in me yet!
