On Reaching Old Age Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

On Reaching Old Age

Rating: 5.0


Time is fleeting in its passing
And does jolt the memory
Recalling images of long ago
When life seemed to stretch far away
Safe from Death's stalking shadow.

As a child I thought as a child
Seeing only bright summer days
With friendships I thought to last forever
And parents who could never die
Old age a distant foreign land.

Now walking the land of the elderly
Old bones and old man troubles
Wondering how long before Death
No longer stalks but claims me
And time no is longer fleeting and stops.
