On 50

Birthdays come and birthdays go
milestones pass as well
from high atop
this mountain of fluff
I watch as time passes by
so many memories
so many regrets
and yet
through it all
it is what I have learned
what I have kept
that which clings like so many burdocks
that remains
Watch the water
as it flows
this day hour minute second
will never pass again
drop upon drop
tick upon tock
they add up
and you blink
accumulation
one lifetime
