The Autumn of Life
I experienced decades of sadness and joy
Curated memories and learned some painful lessons
Just so I can spend the autumn of my life
Reflecting and appreciating.
If I don’t see another winter
That’s fine with me.
You see, I’ve loved many
Experienced the world around me
Shared my knowledge with the masses.
I can leave this world
Happy to see the leaves change colors
As I prepare for my final season.
