The feeling of being boxed in when one can still make a contribution

Oh! Years

Whilst sitting seeing the sight of the field so green
How such certainly depicted a most picturesque scene
And in the distance how those trees decorated the hilltops
The magic, the beauty that thrill made the heart beat momentarily stop

It was with such joy that I ran through the open so swiftly
As I tried to take both birds and butterflies into captivity
Then coming home with the unpleasant smell of those shrubs
And have to instantly place those clothes in the wash tub

How I would climb those seemingly sky high coconut trees
Then too feeling as the friction on descent rub the skin of my thighs and knees
All that forgotten as I took that drink of the mellow and refreshing water
Also eating the with flesh inside even made the time even happier

What could be even better than jumping off those high cliff?
Feeling the engulfment of the water as the descent was swift
Then swimming that distance to where those fishing boats were tied
This was that proof to the other guys that the prowess as a swimmer was certified

But alas! Came that little nudge and a shake on the tired shoulder
That awaked was one that cause concern and a little bother
Now with time those many place with development has gone completely
And there I was happily enjoying and reliving what was a memory’s journey

One component of and on life’s stage is something know as age
And one can be sure it will be feature in everyone’s book page
There I was focus, with my wits about me and still fairly well honed
But will be living my days out so lonely in a retirement home

As a person I welcome change this occurrence is a certainty
Infrastructure and development they do not in any way bother me
It hard to remain sedentary with only thing to do is reminisce
It would be good to be home in my garden letting that green thumb bring on some bliss


Concern, Lonely, Relaxation, Reminisce, Time
