My time is running out
"From An Oldtimer" by jaybird1
When people get along in years,
they have learned so many things.
The troubles, sadness and the tears
and the trials that this life brings.

Success in life has been our goal,
watching others at the crest.
It seems this should not be our role,
if it brings about distress.

The flowers sweetness lose their smell,
when we're always on the run. 
The time has come to stop and dwell,
with the setting of life's sun.

Don't pass us by, we older folk,
hold us always in your heart.
We are shackled by corona's yoke,
that'll go on till we depart.

June-2020
