The years are catching up to us
Our minds seem to be losing touch
No longer do we see or feel
What is fake and what is real.
They say humanity has five senses
Which I tend to disagree
Seeing, smelling, hearing, taste and touch.
But those are just the outer senses of which they speak
What about the inner senses which control you and me.
Love, compassion, fear , hate
Just a few which they forgot to rate.
The list has become so long
That in a book it doesn’t belong.
Sadness, joy, anger, frustration
It’s not even enough for our imagination.
All these things with age we’ve come to know
And in our souls it began to grow.
The soul is the only thing that we can not lose
And given a choice- this I’ll choose
For when it’s time for us to go to the other side
Everything else is left behind.
The soul is like a treasure chest
It holds all the wealth that you’ve created
Of all the feelings known to man
So when you get to GODS kingdom
It becomes like a video that you can see
Of your every step and memory
So Alzheimer’s and dementia stand aside
You ‘re in for a long, long ride.
