The Ultimate Test

My body is getting old.
While my brain is tired from
stories told.
My eyesight gets worse.
I start to wonder
am I cursed.
Friends that I know
now look so bad.
Looking in the mirror
only makes me sad.
Getting out of bed
now takes longer.
God be with the days
that I was stronger.
Not a lot can be done
about it, I guess.
It is all part and parcel
of the ultimate test.
