Kindred Spirits

Coming from different avenues
We meet on the same pathway
Something in your toxic stare stills the water,
A gulf between our generations, stepping stones between
My first world problems, sleep indulged fear of solitude
And your experience, a life well fulfilled,
Grandchildren running up your knees.
Until there is nothing but the river
And the faintest wistful smiles
That settle in the sunset.
