Friend and enemy of mine, you who make

Life seem like heaven or hell and drive on

Relentlessly. Pushing, each morning, to wake

Us from pleasant dreams, making garish dawn

In garish splendor shine, forever gone.

Even now, I struggle against futility,

Watching another day of life withdrawn,

From some fatal account I cannot see;

Accepting death’s approach with nobility.

Time’s shadow cast a hundred years from now

Will tumble my bones in the abyss

Of dark decay, of dust, that won’t allow

Remembrance of a life filled with bliss,

And sorrow-- the promise of a lover’s kiss,

The miracle of birth, the sting of regret;

Intense feelings as we reminisce

In the silver twilight years. Though beset

By death, we’re soothed by times we’ll ne’er forget.
