Leaving the Past

My eyes are dim

My hair’s now thin

Lines upon my face

Are now well worn in

My elbows creak

My knees are weak

As I watch the young

My heart skips a beat

If one thing a life

That’s been so long

Has taught me as –

I’ve gone along

It’s that the past

Should be left behind

The future is where-

A new world resides

A world the young

Will build and bind

Until like me one day-

They too will leave

The past behind
