Down to a tea

To my exes and estranged,
yet to budge from a grudge –
to those who are absent
to those who resent,
to those who are distant with distaste:
I would like to invite you to tea
forty years from now
when we are old,
wrinkled and wringed out by the world
by those things that separated us:
money, lust, power,
status, ambition, a lover.
Let us sit down to tea
and put it all behind us
because forty years later,
it is all behind us.
Simply:
sit, sip, start again
from when our moments were simple and sweet,
like the people we chose to become.
