Spent

A p r o n h e a d -- Lilly

019 - Copy

Withered, wafer thin, and worn—palliative, it would seem.

And all your glories seem forgotten in the pressing now, and

you lean a little more, and

you breathe a little harder, and

you respond less as the mind fails and the body falls to the damage of time and toil.

All the checked to-dos are done and seem but footnotes in a life long lived.

Though much is forgotten,

much is ahead, for

the lasting beauty in this decaying is in

the what will be.

Spent.  Hope.
