Time Lapse

Even changing the linens is now a chore

Due to ever increasing shadows

And mobility issues galore

Where once I moved with agility and grace

Now body movements are slow and thoughtfully paced

I will not name these age old developments

For to do so would just slow me more

The moral of this tale is clear —

Turn your back on Time

And hope He neglects to be near

  3. Beautifully written but so sad as well. I do hope age decides to disappear and start bugging someone else for a while.
