Wrinkles and gray hair…no time to spare.

Tired bones and achy joints…loneliness abounds.

Moments feel like days…time moves too fast.

A cane, dentures, glasses, hearing aides…necessary unpleasant apparatus.

Pills and medication…props to ward off what’s to come.

Fitful unplanned sleep…naps now take up the day.

Hanging on to happy memories…new ones now harder to make.

Preoccupied by the past…uncertain of today.

A life lived nearly to its entirety…uncertain of its worth.
