End of life crisis just what is that
not what you would expect it to be
this one comes when someone is old
and still has dreams the truth be told.
We are born, we live and then we die
is the normal way of things
but in between are a lot of years
each a reflection of our fears.
When we are very, very young
our life is spent on an upward swing
as we wend our way through life
learning a part of everything.
All of a sudden we are middle aged
with responsibilities galore
kids to raise a mortgage to pay
and worst of all our hair turns grey.
Then the kids are gone and just the two
living in a house that’s much too big
shall we move into a smaller house
with all of this room what do we do.
Now we are old and no longer play
and go for long walks every day
just to keep the muscles free
in the hope to extend eternity.
Alas it is a losing game
as things can never stay the same
time marches on and there is no wait
to stand outside those Pearly Gates.
All of a sudden there comes the end
along with a multitude of friends
as we reach the age when we all die
and everyone knows the reason why.
Time Marches On…
