Your Kindness


Write whatever comes to mind

You are loving, you are kind

You have friends from here and there

Stored inside your active mind


All your life you cultivated


All your days you raised your chips In the poker game of life

With minimum strife


Now in the sunset, the years fly by You’re ready to say another goodbye Our legs are fading our greening is


As through your papers

You’re constantly wading

Looking for moments in other lives You found husbands needing wives


 The husbands passed

They didn’t last

Gone away

Far too fast


Now I wait in line to leave you too

In my own sunset years

Because of you

I have no fears
