Life, a journey of contrast
The paradox of leaving while returning
Embraces, handshakes, tears.
Lives touched so briefly
You’re moving on.
Departure, drifting away while drawing nearer
Memories etched in body and mind
Smiles, laughter, sincerity
Never to be forgotten
Good friends forever.
Separation, recreated portraits of joyous times
Victories earned midst sweat and heat
Co-operation, teamwork, partners
Together when they’re apart
