Reality of Life

The Reality of Life

I am bathed now as I once was,

Sponged off and towel dried,

But where are the powder and soft skin,

I think both were gone long ago,

 

I eat now as I once ate,

Soft spooned foods then towel wiped,

But where are the foods that I like,

Gone with the teeth I once had,

 

I listen to stories as I once did,

Short stories that make me glad,

But where are the fairy tales of greed and lust,

Swallowed up in the reality of everyday life,

 

Where are the friends I once knew,

Who traveled down these roads of life,

Have they changed, too, as time went by,

Or have they escaped the ravages of time,

 

As I sit and remember the days gone by,

I find I have returned to my nest,

Where things are the same as they once were,

Swallowed up in the reality of life.
