Trick or Treat

You who are gangly—all angles—
Playful, sweet, sarcastic, finding your way,
Beautiful Leopard, you are a treat!

You who are soft and squishy,
Round like Buddha, seemingly as wise,
Adorable Ballerina, you are a treat!

You who are filled with laughter,
A zest for life and the ironic,
Dear Soulmate, you are a treat.

I measure this Halloween against last.
It's a trick how time passes,
How we outgrow our costumes again.

Love that last line most especially!
Measuring the now against the then,
seeing how we've shed our costumes...
