Cherie Gervais

As I grow older each day,
And heartaches have melted away.
The loves for which my youth once tried,
No longer light the fires inside.
I lift a thorny branch that hangs low,
I smell the rose there, but leave it to grow,
Adventure lacks the lure I once knew,
When I had foolish dreams, and passions too.
I can still smile when I think of the past,
When I placed so much importance on class,
No more do I run against the wind so light,
Or stay up all hours of the night,
I’m no longer eager to peek in a nest,
And never do I hide dust from a guest!
I’m on a journey now, to meet the end,
And lines on my face, I can no longer pretend.
There’s more silver in my hair today,
And do you know what?
It’s never going away!
