Melancholy

Melancholy_b

Sixty (and more, not less)
Still young at heart

Vowing
Never to grow old

Wondering
Where did that youth go?

_____

Has it all been a dream?
Who is to say?

Certainly those
Who shared the experience

Some still here
Some long gone

_____

Melancholy for
Years past

Not for the times
Nor events

Separate from
Memories

_____

Regardless of current value
Or the potential it holds

Less time ahead
Than gone

Melancholy, then
For the future
