Aging Process

AllanBrunmier 1937 (Los Angeles)



when we’re young eager keen
we’re often refreshed
by re-seeing what’s seen

when we’re old floating amid clouds
there’s need to be reminded
we no longer walk in crowds

our journeys are cut short
both in and out of mind
it's expected never leaving port

memory cannot be trusted
not even for brief moments
recall has become so rusted
