Does Anything get better with Age?
In this, another age of losing,
Does the sense of life improve?
It is harder to remember the day she died.
Is there something you would like to see again?
I do wear my trousers rolled.
My closets are stuffed with color options.
Room by room I search the house.
My favorite perfume will run out
Eventually, everything does.
Is the twilight more beautiful?
The house seems larger.
Less gets better with age.
Making friends with the Fool
Knowing he always returns.
Searching for things forgotten.
Spend my entire day searching
For something I can not find
For it is no longer there.
Sleep gets blessed with visions.
Waking and knowing I am alive.
Forgetting fear and loving memory.
Echoes, ringing in from the river.
Spring blossoms blessing my sight.
Geese fly singing overhead.
Always having some place to go.
Being in the advanced stage of life.
Nearing the shadow.
Having nowhere I have to go.
Knowing that it has been worth it.
Yet getting the sense of sensibility.
