Are the lines drawn

In the same sand

As the sand that has

The flags in

Do the lines in

Our faces

Show how much

We’ve laughed

And how often

We’ve sinned

The lines that

We’ve crossed

The loved ones

We’ve lost

And the worries

Of living each day

We have crossed lines

And lay lines

Battle lines, deadlines

And lines that we say,

Like a habit,

Day after day

The lines of a song

That stay with

Us forever

Even if we

Misheard them

And sing them

All wrong

The lines of a poem

That once touched

Your soul

That now you find

You can’t

Quite recall

But the feeling

They gave you

Lives on and on
