Golden Years

Oh what's so good about the golden years?
Kids are grown and gone away.
Still there's no time to play.
Once in awhile they'll stop in to say,
have you got a couple of bucks?
I'm a little short today.

Oh what's so good about the golden years?
If you can't remember and you can't hear.
You got experience behind you, they say.
Learned it all through trial and era.
Wonder if that'll look good on my resume?

Oh what's so good about the golden years?
What once was important,
has faded away.
Our minds are weaker,
our bodies are feeble.
Oh what grim display.
Just to survive another day.

Perhaps our golden years are meant for us to contemplate our new beginnings.

Perhaps, before I knew it and the last one had left home, he had been gone for about a year and came home with a pregnant wife. I had just gotten use to a quiet home and was an apartment manager, something to keep me busy. Oh if I could only write about all the changes I've experienced in my life time, it would be a big book. Thank you Carlos for your comment. I rarely pass my time by contemplating, it's too much for my brain to hold.

A lot of truth here. I like your writing style so far of what I've read. You seem to write like you see it or feel it.

At the time I wrote the poem, it seemed like that to me and of course I had to add some humor. Thank you though for your beautiful comment.
