‘Your people’

Aren’t static.
Nor is the list complete.
Things happen
People change
Faces grow old
Children are born
Children move out
Friends get married
Loved ones pass away
Love passes away
Yet the cycle continues.
Perhaps there was a time
When the people you loved
All lived in one place
And roughly saw the world
The same as you-
Now they are far away
Living a life you can’t relate to.
Maybe ‘your people’
Were never yours to begin with,
Maybe they were fellow artists
Painting a part of the canvas
Similar to your own
And together you created memories
That you will cherish forever
