Old Man

By EDWIN FLORES, www.PoetryPoem.com/poetry2231    Unlock all Features - Upgrade to Poetry Prime

Time spares not one their age
A story told, life briefly paged
A passing thought if so remembered
A Kodak moment by mind surrendered

Adventures had and those wished for
Day dreamed again in heart he stores

Each second ticks away at them
The days and nights of now and then
The gain and loss of close once friends

Reckless use of what was yours
Enjoyed, regrets both you'd endure
Many nights of drunkenness
Of good and bad, stupor confessed

Alone this day to toast yourself
A glass now raised as ice cubes melt
As does your time before you go
Home alone to murmur woes

Old man with thirst for extra time
Old man nearing end of lifetime

Staggered pace you turn the key
To unlock door, bending at knees
To argue case as you near fall
Upon your face, before last call
