Not all make it to retirement as hoped, or live it as was expected. I think “time” is an important element of life that is severely taken for granted:
I think in mind, of aging states,
I hope and pray to last through age;
of happy times, good food to eat,
long walks or hikes of sites unseen.
Of blessed days before I die,
regret–not eating at my mind.
I count each day, a precious bond.
Beyond those years, I’ll rest in Love…
