Quote 10/2 12

lilosophieOctober 2, 2012

Old Age

The bible says threescore and change

They say I live on borrowed time

Some depart before they used the allotment

Unused years a gift for those desiring it

Nothing lasts forever

The infrastructure needs repair

Fixing eyes to read with

Teeth to eat with

As long as mind is clear

Sometimes memory needs to be re-booted

I exist in grateful appreciation of the gift*

As mwheel said, we think it, but can't say it.
