Old and sick



Could i close my eyes and think of us
Old and weak
Old and sick
Stupid and dumb
Lazy and not plumb
Grumpy you or grumpy me?
Both of us wrinkly?

Could you close your eyes and think of us?
No tooth to spare 
Or black pair of hair 
Cant move too fast
Or laugh too hard
Our brown eyes
that's become so grey

Of the time i speak
When I am not pretty ,
Our brain is slow
And you are not smart
Yet will i love you,
Will i love you enough?
Will you hold my old hands?
Will you love me enough?
For i aint pretty and 
You are not smart
Will we love us?
Will we love us enough?

For, this is the time
I will need you by my side
As growing is the deafness
And plummeting is our sight
Will you help me walk the stairs?
As I help you read the paper
We complain and take our medicines
We laugh and play with little kids
We forget, forget and keep forgetting
Yet everyday you kiss me good morning


And even in the darkest days of our life
I pray we shine
With love so pure
and life lived to the fullest
