Just reflecting on a life that is winding down..No regrets,
I am at peace with myself,
and with the world..
Thank you Trudy..
The Winds Of Time
The winds of time caress my brow, my vision dims a bit, somehow.
I am a different person now, perchance, a bit more sage.
As I reflect upon the past, to seek answers to the questions asked
Which I may write upon this page.
I hardly saw the passing years, with all their joys and bitter tears.
They somehow seemed to pass me by; and, now, I vent my rage.
At memories which I have lost, and at the truly awful cost.
Of living in my cage.
Because I’m in my twilight years: I really must confront my fears
I must prepare to face my doom; but not within this lonely room.
I know that I must find a friend, who’ll be there to the very end.
But, how am I to gauge?
The birds sing sweetly, as before, the oceans still caress the shore.
And I am locked, ‘til my last day, in this battle that I wage.
I will fight ‘til my last breath, ‘though I can’t ever conquer death
This could be my last page.
Yet, I have broken all the bars, and gazed in wonder at the stars.
I've rejoiced in all the miracles, and the loves, that were once mine.
At times, of course my heart was sad, my life’s embraced the good and bad.
I, now, accept the winds of ttime
