Do you feel like the world will simply crumble on your head?
Do you wake up and think this can’t be true?
You plow away at your field like a good farmer
The plants all grow as they should – yep, yep sprouts all look good
But the storm comes, the winds, and the rain, and the lightning, and the snow
And soon, it’s all gone; you watch it simply go
Was that a tornado that just passed by – no, just bad luck
Standing there akimbo, stroking at your beard
Perhaps hair that suddenly appeared, as you aged
And you think to yourself and scrape at your head
Ah, dandruff is new and so is that weird looking bump
Never expecting but fully suspecting age might be the culprit
You stroke at your mustache, it’s November after all
“Movember,” thank you very much; apparently a month for all hairy lips
You kiss in the morning that sweetie you love so much
But that cutie was a vapor you simply dreamed – ah, where’d she go?
You roll over on your side, that lump you simply can’t hide
Its grown immeasurably larger and you glance in the mirror
Will it disappear tomorrow… if I pray?
No, because life passes and you live and that’s just how it is
Can’t believe it happened to you?
Well, yes, yes it’s true – its happening to you
With a smile and a gleam your eyes catch that reflection in the mirror
You haven’t changed a bit, maybe a bit for the better
Maybe a bit for the worse, but still…
It’s still you
So reflect and relax and be happy in the fact
Nobody can believe it happened to them at the time it happened to them
(No worries – I’m very healthy) 😉
I hope you all the best in life of seeking and searching and finding what you love. 🙂
Love you Gracie! 🙂 ❤
