More Days

More days behind than the ones ahead 
Time has a way of playing a trick
Love is one gift that will never fade

Ice cream in my hand I'll have a lick
Laugh some more when the hour is late
Time has a way of playing a trick

One day I too will close the old gate
A life that's lived will not have regret
Laugh some more when the hour is late

Talking of the end I am not upset
A future still lies ahead of me
A life that's lived will not have regret

These eyes are dimmer but still they see
The people I love that mean so much
A future still lies ahead of me

I see my darling feel her touch
More days behind than the ones ahead
The people I love that mean so much
Love is one gift that will never fade

    "More days behind than the ones ahead"... you better believe it my friend! At 77, that really nails it! LOL But what I have remaining will continue to be happy and upbeat right to the end! Cheers from the East!

    This is awesome, Richard! This is a type of poetry that I find so difficult to write...you've made it appear easy! Very smooth flowing with a powerful message! Great work! Hugs!
