On the Grass

I see the children 
   playing in the grass 
        near my workplace 
Seems that they know 
what to laugh about 
  No longer do I laugh at silly things 
   The years are starting 
to wear me down 
In the mirror I 
   notice my age 
At lest I have survived to 59 
The joys of life 
  often elude me now 
   With some help from my friends 
I shall get back on track 
I'll keep my eyes 
   Ready to see beauty 
and prepare for its 
into my space, my life

    matt, you funny guy. I never had an Aunt Nell. Did you like how I used Nell for Death Knell? I don't even think they DO death knells any more, do they? About your poem here, I REALLY relate to it. we are BOTH this freaking age of 59. I've only got a month to go and I'll be 60. uggggg. When did you notice the aging.For me, I noticed it big time a few years ago. Maybe around age 57 I became more aware of little things. sucks!!

    Hi Matthew, your words touch my heart. Yes, you may be getting older, but I hope you always find a reason to smile. :) Hugs, Brandy

    Hi, Haven't you hear that laughter is exercise for our inner parts, our lungs muscles, heart, etc. So humor is good for us. Joy isn't hard to find when you surround yourself with happy people and of course, children. I liked your ending as you begin to lift yourself up and reach for a more positive attitude. ~~Darlene
