The 50 year old poet

Sun is shining
and I am in the shade.
A fitting symbol
for the life I have made.
Garden is empty,
no one is around.
Listening to the birds
and their beautiful song.
This for me is
the best part of the day.
Alone with my thoughts
and what they have to say.
On days like today
they are pleasant enough.
They leave me in peace
knowing the night will be tough.
One hour at a time
is all I can manage.
If not it could lead
to untold damage.
