Quietly and Calmly

Calmly and quietly

Through life

I’ll proceed

Enjoying the peace

That it brings to me

Quietly and calmly

Nothing too loud

Garish or brash

Just quietly serene

Aiming to last

Keeping under control

Emotions of love

Joy and happiness

Tinged with sadness

Remorse and regret

Quietly and calmly

I’ll carry on

Seeking new friendships

Old ones defended

Until the very end
