Old Friends

Age has
grayed their hair and
slowed their steps but
their bond of friendship
remains strong.  Years
of travel along the road
of life, from college boys,
to  young professional men,
to family men, and now here
walking together as the sun
begins to cast a smaller
shadow, still sharing thoughts,
ideas, memories.  And I
wonder, do they think
about the day when it’ll all
end, when the good Lord
decides to call one of them
home?  Will it be a sad day?
Do they already know
time is ticking down?
