This young year has already been the last
to see a new Robin Williams performance on screen.
“Night at the Museum Part Three” echoes the past,
as the presence of actors my age grows lean
and I look back wishing I were still a teen.
With sadness I see my peers grow old,
but a young person is still trapped in my frail heart.
What will transpire as I watch the year unfold?
Which high school friend will be the next to depart?
How I miss Elaine, a sweet lady so beautiful and smart!
Even more distressing are the family concerns --
aging siblings and a dear uncle of great years.
Fear within my spirit relentlessly burns.
Young nieces have yet to shed worrisome tears
for the fears that accompany the starting of years.
