Gone, faces of my youth, my family, my friends and classmates all of them have gone on. Some early and some later. None left to share my memories. The world is a very lonely place. I am the last of my generation.

    This speaks so poignantly to the heart of all who reach the golden years, or beyond. You have touched so many with your words today, dear Joyce. I think the emotion is so honest and true to life. Sometimes we can't make younger people understand the importance of our needing a commonality with those who lived beside us through our yesterdays. Best wishes to you today!

    You have written a truth, Joyce. My brother and I (age 85) are the last of our generation and I have the same thoughts now and again but am delight in recalling many happy memories. Best to you -bob h

    I can relate Joyce. All my elder relatives are gone. I have lost three wonderful best friends, one to dementia who no longer knows me. Your poem packs a powerful punch to all of us who are in your boat! Excellent passion in this piece. I hope it scores high Joyce. It has with me. #7 ; )

    Though soaked in sadness, nevertheless a flash of beauty in which we see and feel many a truth ....
