Learning with Age

as a boy I busted my chin open
and I needed to get myself stitches
once they were in place didn’t reopen
soon I was back playing in the ditches

I never knew what stiches was back then
I heard of stitches I was really scared
years later something else happen again
going with Rob for chemo unprepared

I heard of chemo without knowing it
after it was done he was in so much pain
heating pad on his back when he did sit
Cancer ate him away he was so drain

best friend for a few years helped me a lot
for many his life not a passing thought

    Hi Robert; This is good. I don't know how old you are, The years don't pass by for nothing. We do learn a lot with age. I believe that no matter how old you are - you will always learn something new. Thanks for reading my poem. If you are new - welcome to PoetrySoup. Lucilla
