Don’t get old!


I have been meaning to write to you. 

There’s so much to share. 

I don’t even know where to begin. 

Where are you now?

I picture you on your boat, the rolling seas mocking your exuberance.

My patients often admonish me, “don’t get old!“ as if I can stop time taking space across my face. 

You know what I have seen? 

The old, they count backwards: “where they’ve been, what they’ve done.”. 

They often live life in reverse “how once upon a time, they did or saw, or wished or hoped”. 

The old, they have just a past that lingers and whispers ever so often. 

There is no remedy unless one rides bareback across the dew of mornings.

I miss you still. 

I await the moment you’ll be near when I could rest on your shoulder to share such tales. 

Until next time, my summertime!

A thinker. I analyze everything. I live in my head, sometimes it is my protective mechanism and most times, I just like it. My mind has not failed me yet... My life's mantra: "Treat others as you would like to be treated". Blessed be! Fave quotes:“I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me. All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.” Jackie Robinson
