How Has A Whole Life Gone By? - Poem by Shalom Freedman

How has a whole life gone by?
I really don't understand
All the years- what happened to them?
What were they exactly?
I don't remember
I remember so little
Could so much time have passed
So much happened
And I remember so little?
I am toward the end now
It is still good to be alive

All the years
The whole of my life- almost
Has gone by
Where is it?
Where am I?
With so little time left and so old
Older than I ever thought or imagined myself to be
Here now still here
With most of it gone by
How?
Why?
