It's coming soon
December 29
Hard to explain
Something called time
Seems like yesterday
I was 31
Now I'm Turning
71

I'll keep singing
Karaoke
Writing songs
And recording
Something to do
It spurs me on
Now I'm turning
71

I express myself
In lyrics and verse
It helps me deal
With mankind's curse
Sickness and age
Mortality
Here I stand
What's left of me

It's coming soon
December 29
I was born
In 45
I'll live life
Until it's done
Now I'm turning
71

Hi Jim, I really like this poem and could so relate as I recently turned 76. So far it's been a great age and am looking forward to more. miki
