All Of Us

All of us waded out up to our waists;
All of us, far from our troubles and hastes –
All of us stood with the sun shining down
In emerald-green water, few others around

All of us laughed as the waves undulated;
Nothing expected or anticipated –
None of us knowing, as we breathed that air;
This was the last time we all would be there –

All of us, now, are much fewer than then;
All of us boys are now some of us men –
None of us know, as our lives wander on,
When we’ll next look
And find someone
Is gone
