At The Sunset Of My Life

17 Jun

This photo goes with the poem At The Sunset Of My Life

At the sunset of my life I want to be able to say I did those things.

I spread my wings.

I tried new things.

*

At the gloaming of my life I want to be able to say I wrote that book.

Life gave, I took.

No second look.

*

At the twilight of my life I want to be able to say I lived my life.

I went through strife

With a drum and fife.

*

At the midnight of my life I want to be able to say I fought and battled.

My sabre rattled.

No road less traveled.

      Thanks! πŸ™‚
      After I read it aloud to Lonnie he said something about ‘the road less traveled’ and that last stanza appeared in my head.
      He really is my muse. πŸ˜€
