For You Like Me - Poem by Francis Duggan

We age and grow old by the day
And young anyone does not stay
Face lifts and anti aging creams may keep age wrinkles at bay
But time on us has the last say
Though years beyond your life's prime physical stage
You may look quite young for your age
But age will creep on you by degrees
And you will die like the bushes and trees
Life does not last for evermore
The average human life span ten years with three score
Life's Reaper will eventually come reaping your way
And for you there will be a last night and day
Your gift of life is not an eternal thing
For you like me there will be a last Spring.
