To the oldest or youngest in the room:

You’re the one awkwardly shifting foot to foot.
You’re the one looking around a little more than anyone else.
You’re the one running around the hors d’oeuvres table in complicated circuits so no one will notice you’re idle.
You’re the one trying to hum a song to yourself.

But:
You’re the guest of honor.
You’re the variety.
You’re the token cool.
You bring dynamic balance to this weighty juxtaposition of humanity.
You shine light.
And all eyes watch.

You’re the one I look at.
You’re the one I appreciate.
You’re the loner, outsider, unprofessional schmoozer.
You’re alone yet surrounded.
You’re here.
