'Today's Thoughts'


I saw a kitten just today,
Or was it only yesterday?
My old memory just fades in and out.
Help me God, I want to shout.

Growing old is such a task,
Why is this happening I want to ask.
My hands are gnarled and racked with pain.
I know that you are here to feed me again.

Slowly I chew much to your chagrin,
And then I dribble down my chin.
You wipe it away with disgust,
But in your heart you know it's a must.

I know what you're thinking. It makes me sad.
I only wish I were with my Dad.
Someday I think, and then I smile.
I know that it will be just a little while.

I'm coming home Dad to be with you,
I'll leave this body far behind.
And like a drop of dew our light will shine;
forever more our love will bind.
