Within The Age Cage

Young and happy,

enjoying life.

Not a trace

of any strife!

Isn’t this

what we miss

as we age

within the cage?

Trapped inside

trying to hide,

we actually dare

to share.

Does this make sense

to my friends?

It should.

They would.

At Your Grave

Beauty in a death of one,
I really loved so much.
Though I’ve been through a lot,
I’ve never hurt as such
A devastating time as this.
It’s really something new.
How can I come to deal with it,
If I don’t know what to do?
All the days we shared together,
All the smiles we gave,
I never knew there’d be a day
I’d stand here at your grave.
