Irony of Fate

 

The hands that held me tight

When I stumbled

Is now fragile

Searching someone to hold him tight

Keeping him away from fright.

I couldn’t hold my tears

To watch Robust of yesteryear’s

In fears.

This is where

The fate breaches faith.

    Ah, the tenderness of age. It comes with wisdom, fear and a lot of emotion.
