Life is a poem in itself

Youth Born. A new book to open Hundred blank pages of promises A life yet to write. Elder Awaken. Find the life has taken flight Provide only slightly time To leave behind a mark, a footprint. Dead Silence. Last word had written. A poem of life framed in memories The journey has ended.
