Twenty- five years

Fly away,
To a place where humanity lays,
Where do you think you'll be in 25 years?

We cant lie,
A part of us is gone when a loved one dies,
Where do you think you'll be in 25 years?

Winter will be cold,
I hope we all have someone to hold,
Where do you think you'll be in 25 years?

Pain and death has started to obscure
The hairs of a young girl are getting fewer,
The Doctors say she wont see 25 years.

A lasting love was once found,
For two young teens in an old town,
They are blessed to see 25 years.

The point I am trying to make,
Is that life is a gift that God can give or take,
So where do you think you'll be in 25 years?

Don't know if I will be around in 25 years. I am 58. Yes, life is a gift that we have to make the most of. Nice poem! Things are O.K. in New York. The place is a bit edgy but very exciting. I am a featured reader at the Poetry Forum on October 18th. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
