Not Only!

Not only humans wait for the end

all living things must transcend.

Nothing lives forever this we know

then our light becomes a glow.

Long years of labour without reward

money all spent you cannot hoard.

So much paid out but little returned

as your money is hard earned.

To understand how others have lived

or to go through what they did.

knowing the depths of their despair

also must have been there.

Gone the handshake for their devotion

when we could show emotion.

With respect for any staff member

and names they could remember.

Those edging towards their retirement

these days have no sentiment.

Yet happy for their passed employment

thus still being independent

Everything  surely must have a limit

it is not easy to admit.

That we would like to stay in our prime

thinking maybe for all time.

The Foureyed Poet.
