after having six beers

sit i here in tears

a broken old man

from times of yore

ill do what i can

with the lore

lonely am i from days past

my loved ones ill find

ill be with them at last

follow that road

like in kind

i know ill not be 

left behind

      A well rhymed lament on the loss of old friends - it goes with the flow of life to its end Pauly - - thanks for sharing it.

          One of the dilemmas we face as we grow older - fine work.

            sad isn't it.
            not crocodile tears.
