TAKIN’ A LOOK
When looking in the mirror,
Do we really see who’s there?
The wrinkles and the ripples
Below the thinning hair.
When we look more carefully
Through glasses to help us focus,
Are we searching for that cream
To provide some “hocus pocus?”
Is it becoming more difficult to
Remember where you’re going?
Or finding yourself on some bus
Without even really knowing?
The meals we plan then cook
We do with such delight,
But the joy we had in eating
Is forgotten the following night.
The questions keep on coming,
The answers “not so much”,
Getting on in age can be a bitch
But dying early really "sucks."
