Years

It’s only time, it’s no big deal
The numbers do not age reveal
Symbolic numbers, marking days
Recording lifetimes on a page

Months or years, all the same
Each one gone as others came 
Too much thought of where they went
Instead of how the time was spent

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer .wordpress.com as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
