Patience is Mortality?

via Daily Prompt: Patience


We celebrate the birth of a little one
by sending flowers to Mum

We celebrate all their birthdays
with food, balloons and gum

We celebrate their 21st
and the freedom they dearly thirst

We celebrate them getting married
and the weight that may well burst

We watch them through the mid-life years
and the things that make it tough

We see them into retirement
aches and pains when things get rough

We celebrate the passing of a loved one
and wonder about all the fuss

We look back in the mirror
and realise this is all about us

Mortality is Patience?
