Remember, Growing Older

“I don't remember growing older.  When did they?”
So sang Tevya, with pride and joy, in 'Sunrise, Sunset'.
We also don't remember our friends
growing older.  Then suddenly. they die.
I think how much more I could have learned
   from them, how much I enjoyed their company.
We can learn more now, as we remember them.
We can enjoy their company now, as we remember them.
Meditate on their life, 
   which has ended, as will ours.
