Catch The Wind (poem)

How can I catch the wind once more

Which flows beyond my darkened door

To fill the streets were once we’d soar

I’m not the one I was before


I didn’t sit here wondering

How can I catch the wind once more

So confident who they were for

Another day another fling


I paid no heed to rains that came

Which flows beyond my darkened door

Whose shadows laughed as troubles pour

There was a dawn the sun would claim


Each day I woke up to the test

To fill the streets were once we’d soar

But my old age began to roar

Would all my dreams become a jest


A query winds of time would face

I’m not the one I was before

I taught another to explore

Whose trust in me now takes my place

This sounds like a journey. Very thought provoking.

It is thought provoking and I can relate to it very well. however, I think it is something that we fight against as long as we possibly can. The wind can refresh and blow away the cobwebs, but it can also cause draughts which aren't so good for the elderly! Best to leave it all for the next generation.
