Slowing Down

Slowing Down

My gait is much slower
My memory's shot
The hair on my beano
Is thinning a lot

Now starting to notice
These things that occur
On a near daily basis
Pretty normal I'm sure

But seeing that this
Is my first time around
Each day's like no other
But exciting I've found

Hope I've still got some
Happy days up ahead
Winding up in a home
Is something I dread

But I'll still write poetry
Till the day I keel over
My life's been amazing
Not one complaint ever

Feel so damn fortunate
To have lived my life free
A shining example of
What life oughta be!
