Through these eyes...
Claudelle DeLuna said:

Great poem!
P.S.
I agree, I think age is a state of mind!
and I also think because of that we can actually look younger than others our same age. The brain mirrors what we feel.
Bless Day Sir,

Being Thin
Goldfinch60 said:

Good advice and very true. We all have it within us to keep reasonably fit and healthy without having to resort to costly diets or gyms.

Eat less of what you enjoy,
walk quickly to the pub!

ADHD
Claudelle DeLuna said:

Excellent poem!
P.S.
I like it because it is a reality of
a lot of adult population and just like anything else in life it has its pros and cons, just a matter of finding what works for each individual. Sometimes a hobby/sport can turn into the perfect relaxation technique for some!

misskay said:

I really enjoyed reading this,
A fine write indeed!
Although I’m genuinely sorry about your news for you and your son,
You portrayed your unfortune wonderfully in this poem!
I hope you can relax your mind enough sometimes to finish a reluctant task to feel accomplished and to quiet your active mind sometimes to enjoy a good book!

Sometimes our eyes are opened to our own problems in an unexpected way. Your words explain the problem very well, I do sincerely hope that you can find a way to relax in your retirement.

Good limerick, I hope your wife enjoys her running, I thought about it once but went and lay down in a darkened room until the though went away.

Very good, those morning walks can be so special and as you say the joy you get from them is free.

Very true, I too enjoy photography and it is surprising what you can see in life through a lens, With a lens you see not just look.

It can be a grumpy scene when you cannot sleep. I hope you both survive.

Some nights are just like that. The funniest ones though (when looking back on them) was when my wife was having hot flushes, suddenly in the middle of the night the covers would be thrown off the bed with the cry \"I AM SO HOT!\"
