Composing the Future

 When young at heart, and on a roll,

The age of fifty, is a faraway goal,

And as years drift by, one may not foresee,

The fearful fifties, as a fait accompli.

 *

Venturing beyond the middle year,

Offers new perspectives, and new frontiers,

Affording more pleasurable things to do,

Literature, art, music, or something new.

 *

Music is an indulgence, which always brings joys,

A guitar or piano, are fantastic toys,

The thrill never ends, playing the keys,

And the more one plays, the more one is pleased.

 *

Life can be like music, harmony and rhymes,

Playing on life’s keyboard, can create good times,

The more time one gives, the better they’ll be,

Composing the future, like a sweet melody.
