Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

He looks in the mirror


He pulls at his skin


With a shiver no glimmer


Of who he had been




Had it been so long


How the years had flown past


It all seemed so wrong


Why does youth not last




His clear sight now going


His hearing impaired


His body now slowing


His harsh years laid bare




He wished he'd been told


He wish he had known


That life is like gold


Not to be blown




To late to repair


The damage he'd done


He whispered a prayer


His soul meet loved one
